C drive 0MB cant log on

Hey all,

The other day I noticed that 1 of my pcs ran out of space on C drive. well I ran C cleaner and rebooted. now the screen does not show the log in bar after i hit ctl alt del. it runs for a minute and goes back to showing ctl alt del.

Is there any way short of repartitioning and reinstallling 7 htat i can free up some space maybe using cmd promp? safe mode wont allow log on either.

Thanks in advance

The CC Cleaner deleted something in the registry. I don't ever run that. CC is not going to help your problem. You don't have enough space. I read your specs and your C: drive is 80 GB, is that correct? You can try a Startup Repair. It might repair what CC Cleaner broke. Startup Repair When your PC is booting again, you need to transfer something to another disk. If yours is 80 GB, that is plenty for the OS and a few programs, but not too many. You need to transfer some stuff to one of your external drives. Let me know how the Startup Repair goes.

i did start up repair several times to no avail. not sure how C drive filled up so fast. i thought there'd be something to prevent total zero out.

I had asked how big the drive was. == Nothing will tell you when it gets full unless you look in Computer and the drive shows Red since it is almost full. Nothing else. == Your programs need to be on the C: drive along with the OS. The pictures, docs, etc can be on another drive. If Startup Repair didn't work, I think it is time for a Clean Install Windows 7 Follow this tutorial and you won't have any problems.
