The C: disk is too full. When downloading with IE, the file is first saved to %temp% then moved to the final location. You could change temp to a folder on D:. Create a temp folder on D, then Right click computer, properties, advanced system settings, environment settings and change both TMP and TEMP for user and system to d:\temp. You should also move swap to D: as well. This may make it usable. Maybe you could ask your friend to re-size the C: disk. 16 gigs really isn't enough ...
