Hi my name is mitzevo and I am a software addict, some times I think I spend more time playing around with software than actually using it for its purpose, for instance, I try test at least 3 apps from one category (ftp programs, text editors, etc.), it really is time consuming, but I'm just trying to find the best for myself and now I have no GBs!.. Can any one help me? I need extra GB's to store more softwares.. cmon guys, just email me how many GB's you want to help me out with and I will be happy to accept any thing! But I also store alot of (questionable?) things as well.. so yeah.. help me out with extra GB's!

Check your recycle bin. I may have hidden some space in there for you. If not, I might have hidden it in Add/Remove programs.  ;)

Add/Remove programs is to appaholics what Antabus is to alcoholics... or perhaps not quite, but it sounded good :)

Add/Remove Programs does take time to come up. A better alternative is ZSoft Uninstaller.

Get an old computer. I have a laptop lying around with a 5GB hard disk. I use it regularly. Then, when I get back to using my main computer, 60GB seems like a lot. It also teaches me to only install apps I need. I test them out and then quickly decide to keep them or remove them.

Other things you can try :

1) Remove hotfix uninstall information. If you had not had problems in a while, just remove this to save some space.

2) Turn off system restore. Disk Imaging is way better.

3) Delete leftovers from older installations. Lots of programs leave behind user settings and other files even after uninstall. Unless you plan to reinstall again in the future, you can delete the user settings.
