Make sure all of your files are sorted into the User folders, then go through and throw out what you don't need.

Uninstall any Programs you don't use or want.

Some of these steps may help: Clean up factory bloatware

Then clean up with CCleaner.

Go into Computer, right click on Local Disk (C: ) -> Properties ->Disk Cleanup
Allow it to scan your computer then check items you want to delete.

If drive space is that low have you considered buying a bigger hard drive?

If you post your system specifications we can offer advice on which one to buy.

In fact, you might want to consider buying a solid-state drive - a performance boost and more storage space can't be bad.
