    Hi Matthew.

    One of the easiest ways to create more disk space, is simply to uninstall anything you don`t use or require, from add remove programmes in your control panel.

    Once you`ve finished uninstalling stuff, run a defrag.

    Regards Howard :)

    Uninstall all unneeded programs, check for viruses and spyware, run a disk clean up, defragment. This should do nicely.

    Back up any document/media files you don`t access very often,to DVD/CD.
    Then delete them from the HD.

    Reduce system restore space to 400MB or so.
