have you cleared your restore points?

start > run > sysdm.cpl > restore tab > tick the 'turn off system restore > apply > ok > you should be back at your desktop now.

start > run > sysdm.cpl > restore tab > untick the 'turn off system restore' > apply > okay.

that will flush all your past restore points, free up all the space, and create exactly one restore point.

Adding RAM has no effect on disk storage. What error message are you getting, and which issue is the problem?

That means you're low on hard drive space. It has nothing to do with RAM / memory which is what you added. Use TreeSize to find out what's taking up space.

No. It only reports what is taking up space. You only want to delete files you don't want/need any longer. If you want to remove software, go through Add/Remove Programs or use the application's uninstall option. NEVER just delete software.
