Hi,
I've had issues updating and running programs as i am very low on storage on my main windows driver, and i have tried to uninstall a few programs but the ones using the majority of the space i am unable to uninstall as it gives me the error 1723, i have tried reinstalling java and it has not worked but it was not done on the same driver as the applications, does this matter or any clue on how to fix. Thanks,
Harry

Lets first try to make some more space. Go to Start > Administrative Tools > Disk Cleanup. It will erase temp files and other unneeded files for you. Most people say you need 15% free space on drive C.

yeah ive done that before it didnt free up much if any,
this hard drive has been transferred form a different computer if that matters just in case its due to missing files required??

Where did the error code 1723 come from? Which program were you trying to uninstall when you got that error? Did the code came with any error message that maybe explains it a little ?

i was uninstalling an old game that was on the hard drive before 'guitar hero world tour' and 'guitar hero 3' they both require java to uninstall so i think its some thing to do with that but I'm not 100% sure

Try Tree Size Free to find where the data is being used. You will need to run it as an administrator after installing to see system folders.

There should be a portable version too to install on a usb drive if you are not able to download it.
