    Hiya.

    I have a weird problem going on. I install something,and when I get tired of it,I just uninstall it. But when I remove the folder from my C:\ drive and fully uninstall the program,it still takes up the same space as if it were installed! For example,I have 81% left on my hard drive. I install something and it goes down to like 79%. I install the program and remove the folder and registry stuff but it's STILL 79%. Can anyone help in fixing this? Thanx in advance

    Are you running Norton Utilities? If so, check the Norton Protected Recycle Bin properties. FWIW, I turn that totally off and allocate 0% of the disk to it's usage, and this problem disappeared for me. :D

    Well,I don;t use Norton Utilities but I am burning it off my friend right now. So from now on when I uninstall things it will actually give me more space? And how do I get my other space back?
