I read the anwer to the above poster and went to the site that he mentioned. I did notice, that by clicking on free, they made note of the fact that there are no more free spots and you would currently have to pay. I was interested because I had the same problem that you had only 1 week after installing my new OS 7. I solved it by using image restore, I think that system restore would work just as well. My advice, if you have a system restore point or a system image piror to the time that you first experienced the problem, you may want to try that. I can tell you from personal experience, it worked for me. Incidentally, when I was trying to reseach an answer to my problem, I noticed that is quite common.

A system restore didn't help me though
I had to do a clean install to get rid of the problem.

Ratepv,

Thanks for the link. I am going to save your post in my favorites. As I said I had the problem, before and it may return. I think that most would agree, solving the problem with your link is a bit more practical than using system image.

Just remember to restart your computer after copying and be carefull what you delete in your Disk Cleaning programs

Good luck!

Thank you!

I guess it worked then!

And now for your question to be answered:

You do a scan in Auslogic Disk Cleaner and it will show up
files that can be deleted.

You need to double click on "Windows Temporary files" (i'm guessing because im currently logged on my XP)
and you select all files from C:/Windows/System32/LogFiles and click "Move selected to Ignore list"

It's something like this:
