    Hello, I do disk cleanup regularly, well anyway, sometimes, out of the blue, it will freeze, take like 10 min, then system error reports archives and such with say like 43GB each....

    Now, if I delete these, it delete half the files and stuff on my system, wallpapers, programs, everything.....

    My HDD won't gain any space...I cleanuped up over 214MB and such off my thing, I didn't check the error reports in fear of loosing me files again....

    This problem has been the result of the last FIVE system restores I've had to deal with....please can someone help me...

    Symptoms...
    I click run disk cleanup, it takes awhile, out of bad luck or something, maybe my ram counts to low, comp freezes up, it takes about an extra 5 min....
    When it does come up, all those error archive reports say 43GB and such...if i delete them deletes nearly everything on my comp....
    I now can't gain any HDD space, even after clearing everything, nothing will change.....

    Have you tried deleting those error logs? Check the boxes and run cleanup.

    When you choose to delete the error logs, everything on your computer gets deleted? So, you had to reinstall already?
