hey try cleaning ur C drive. Delete files in C\users\AppData\local folder...these are the temporary files which get accumulated after some time...this problem is more predominant in Vista...hope it works...๐Ÿ˜

yep, defrag your drive, the delete or compress what you can to increase space. otherwise a hard drive upgrade is in order. I use an external hard drive for that reason to store music, photos & movies on to keep my laptop running good.

If you still have the same problem, run Scan Disk by right clicking on the C drive Icon --> Properties --> Tools ---> Check now button... And if you want to see how much space certain files take up, right click on them and click on properties.. deleting that file would free that much space... I do not advice deleting files in C however, if you do not need a program, go to control pannel --> Add remove programs and remove the programs from there... Hope this helps.

A few EASIEST and safest things you can do to get your pc back to life.

1. Download a freeware (Certified ***** rating by Product reviews and prices, software downloads, and tech news - CNET) called as CCLEANER. I am using this software since last 1 yr. Since than all space problems, all garbage junk files and other related issues got resolved. My pc runs as fast as was new and never shows space issues.

Just give it a try and let me know. I am damn sure this will resolve the purpose.

2. Next you need a software called as 'auslogics disk defrag'... This is by far the fastest and cleanest disk degragmenter. Use this software and after using these two softwares your space related issues for your pc(Assuming windows based pc) will get resolved.

3. After doing the above 2 points. Next install Norton or any gud antivirus. RUN it full.

4. If you are a frequent internet user than Probably your machine got hit by a Trojan horse (Kinda virus) , so install PC TOOLS firewall (Freeware and is excellent tool).

For further related information or on any other technical issues, or info you can frequently visit my blog.

as Gohm mentioned
defragmentation should help

as well do an auto archieve . it releases a good amount of memory as well ๐Ÿ˜€

i doubt can it be because of any malware or virus??
yeah, viruses and worms can be a big culprit, causing perpetual low disk space. Give the computer a good thorough scan ๐Ÿ˜€

well you have to do 2 things for that 1st of all defrag your C drive and 2ndly there is a program called SpeedUpMYPC, when you delete/uninstall a software from your PC it's not completely deleted, this little software will make sure that the software is completely deleted my cleaning the extra files, so run the scan and your C drive will be free again

there is only 175M, you cannot do defragment, you should run Clean Up (right click the partition and click properties), but this cannot solve the problem completely. You'd better use some program to resize the partition and make it bigger. You may try the best free partitioning software

I've a strong urge to remove the 'free partitioning software' link from above post.
