Have you tried cleaning up your temp files and emptying your recycle bin?

it could be your PAGE/SWAP file. It works like the temp file way but differently (DONT DELETE IT). It can swell in size.

it can. it can go up to as much as you want to go, usually, its the same size of your Physical ram, but, if you have under 500mbs of ram, it doubles.. lol?

also, if its XP, it could be system restore, which can take up room! I think the default is like 1.5gbs~

another solutions is when you go to "clean up", there is a "more options" tab, click on that, and then click on "clear system restore ememory" or somethig. it will erase all restore points except the newest one so BEWARE>
