Did you do an inplace reinstall? Or did you format and reinstall?

Surge1223 has asked a rather important question. If you didn't format and reinstall you probably have a Windows.old folder somewhere on your hard drive.
To check this, open up Computer and then your C: Drive. If you can see a Windows.old folder, this will probably be taking up a large portion of hard drive space.
If you have got a Windows.old folder, are you happy with your current Windows 7 installation?
If you are happy that you've got all your programs and data that you need and you will no longer need to access any files from the old installation of Windows, you can remove the Windows.old folder by following the steps in this link: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows7/how-do-i-remove-the-windows-old-folder
Once you've removed you should see a improvement in amount of free space.
If you want to see which folders are using the most hard drive space you can use free utilities like:
