Cannot reduce the used space in hard drive
I know this is not a 7 OS but I have a Toshiba laptop that one of my work colleagues has with XP on it.
She is saving very hard for a new desktop (with 7) and needs this machine for the meantime.
Now the machine only has a 40GB HDD and I have been trying to empty it out but no amount of uninstalling programs seems to work. I have had to install IE8 (6 before) Comodo free and SP3 so I guess that is some of the problem?
I have removed nearly 300 malwares from the machine and really I wouldn't be doing this if she didn't need it.
I have done some Googles and have seen some refs to media caches and the like but I just don't know where to look and Googling is coming up with nothing much at all.
Can someone please give me a few pointers as the disk is now just 1.35GB shy of full?
