Hi ginelf. Go to <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.piersontech.com/07-CleanHardDrive.htm>http://www.piersontech.com/07-CleanHardDrive.htm</A> and print the page.
Next time you boot up, at the very moment you see "Starting windows...", hit the F5 key and hold it until it starts beeping. The goal is to boot up in Safe mode. It looks real weird on your screen.
Then, follow the Steps 1 and 2 of the printed instructions. Then hit Start-Shutdown and Restart the computer. Continue with the instructions. Step 3 is optional, but you should definitely do Step 4 and 5. And you most likely WILL want to empty your recycle bin, especially if you're low on space. You'll gain a little space by dumping *.avi files that come with Windows--maybe 10MB
