    Run this neat little utility and see if you can track down where it all went?

    Have you installed a partition?
    Go to diskmanagement and post back want it discribes.
    Go to start>run and type in diskmgmt.msc and hit enter

    It could be that you are plainly running out of space. How many programs did you install? Also, do you know how much space was used right after the fresh install, it should have been just a few GBs. By the way, if you are just running out of space, don't worry, hard drives are fairly cheap.
