    +++ I have a problem that I keep getting " you have low disk space on c " . I do not have a lot of programs. No games, etc. Just use email, google search, Facebook etc.
    I run the cc cleaner,, it "SAYS" it has freed up space, but minutes later i get the same response that Im low on disk space.
    ( a while back i un-installed Mozilla/Firefox,, but when I run the cc cleaner - firefox shows up in the cc cleaner. Could Firefox still be in there when i thought I un-installed it and it is using up space ?? Just an idea.
    Thanks for your help .

    40 GB is a pretty small hard drive for XP. Having said that, it may be helpful to look at where the space is being used. You can do so with a free small utility called Treesize. You can download it by clicking here. Install it and run scan of your C:/ drive to see how much space is being used and by what.

    A screenshot of the Treesize scan would be helpful. In case you do not know how to do that, following is a detailed process.
    I sggest you expand the Treesize window to full screen to ensure capturing all the information.
