Windows 7: Only 2GB free but not that much installed

Look into the page file settings and hibernation. If you have more than 4GB of RAM, with these two on, 50 GB would be too tight a space even for a lean system without too many applications installed.

Program Files (x86) is 19.5GB
Program Files is 1.5GB

There is NVIDA/DisplayDriver/285.62 380.2MB and 280.26 which is 302.3 surely one can be deleted.

The page file 3975MB allocated. I have 4GB of RAM and hibernation is now switched off

That entire C:\Nvidia folder can be deleted, all it is is the install files that the downloaded exe extracts too. No idea why it doesn't extract to a temp folder (AMD drivers do the exact same thing), and cleans out after install.

Hmmm..............

In your first post, you state that you don't have many programs installed.

It would appear you have many more installed than I do---my Program Files (x86) folder is 2.5 GB.

How much space occupied by C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution? You can delete it.

Yeah, that is a good point. Mine is 1.75GB and I have quite a few programs installed. Must be games that bloat the x86 programs.
