I suggest you run Temp File Cleaner. Next, use Folder Size to track down large folders and files. Also, please ensure System Restore isn't taking too much space up — I sincerely believe that this is your issue, as Windows sometimes increases System Restore space by itself.  (If necessary, delete some restore points.)

Good luck! :thumbup2:
