    Hi, I have a 80GB HDD and I'm down to 13GB's. I'm wanting to run a DVD program, which requires my to have at least 20 GB of free space. Can any one tell me where all of my free space has gone? I'll send a HiJack.

    Try running Disk Cleanup removing all but the last restore point, and then try CCLeaner to remove more junk files. Delete all the C:\Windows\Prefetch files , and then run chkdsk and defrag and see how much space you have.

    You should also remove all hidden $NTUninstaller$ files from C:\Windows and then remove their entries from Add-Remove programs.

    I have run Disk Cleanup it does remove a little but not a lot.
    CCLEANER I don't have that or at least I don't think I do, where would I go to download that?

    As far as Prefetch goes, a Dell tech. told me to remove the folder, so I did.

    When I ran defrag I got a messsage that read: Some files on this volume could not be defragmented.

    Please check the defragmentation report for the list of these files. The ones it could not defrag were movie files and I deleted them. I'll defrag again.

    I do have a ton of those $NTUninstaller$ files, so it's okay to delete these? I assume by hidden you mean their are a light blue colored file instead of a bold blue colored file?

    How do I know where to find the exact entry for these files in Add/Remove program, and will I be able to remove them if I delete them first in C:\WINDOWS ?

    As far as Add/Remove goes I have trouble getting into Control Panel, when I click on the C.P. icon it just flickers and goes back to my desktop screen all my desktop icons disappear for a second or two then come back? Not sure what's going on here either?

    If and when I'm able to get into Add/Remove is it okay to Remove the icons that look like their for installing or uninstalling a program? Because I have a bunch of them. NO! You'll remove the programs they relate to.

    I did find some movie files that I had saved and deleted them. I'm now at 18.8GB of free space.

    I know I given you a lot here, please take your time.
    I do need help! Thank You !!

    Just use Google to find CCLeaner.

    If you make a note of the $NTUninstallers$ files you'll know which Hotfixes to remove from Add-Remove programs.

    How much RAM does your system have?
