Seriously???  This is a program which you will download from this website.  Grlinler, the owner of this website goes the extra mile to make sure the programs you can download from here are not only safe, but don't contain any third party software embedded in the download.

 

The information that the Speccy snapshot is in great detail.  What you posted doesn't really help at all.

Your C: drive only has 1.6GB of free space, that's 7%.  A drive of this size should have at least 15% free space.  

 

After looking up the motherboard for this tablet it looks like this is a Dell Venue 8 Pro (5830).  Is this what your tablet is?

 

This being a tablet I doubt there is much that can be done other than freeing up space on the SSD.

Is System Restore turned on?

 

If so, adjust the allocated space - http://www.sysnative.com/forums/windows-8-windows-rt-tutorials/10752-windows-system-restore-configure-restore-point-space-windows-10-8-1-8-7-vista.html
