    Hi royang67

     

    Firstly check to see if there are any unwanted programs installed. If so, uninstall them.

     

    It will be worth running Disk Cleanup on your drive - type in the search box from your start menu/screen Disk Cleanup right click & choose Run as Administrator. Select OK on your C: drive. Once it has finished calculating make sure all boxes are checked, click OK, then Delete Files.

     

    System Restore can take up lots of space, so go back to Disk Cleanup now select the "More Options" tab. On the "System Restore & Shadow Copies" part, select "Clean Up" /

     

    Next, follow this guide, to do a Disk Check.

     

    If you're STILL showing as Disk Full, then it may point to a failing hard disk, and it will need replacing. You have made backups of everything, yes?
