Click start, accesoires and software. There select the add/remove windows components tab and delete everything you don't need.

I'm not sure if this is possible, actually. And I'm not sure this would provide you much free space, you know...

Next to none. :lol:

Best way to free up space is "Add or Remove programs" sort by "Frequency of use" Their you will see what programs your not using much now(or not at all).

Then use "Disk Clean up" Under system tools, check(Tick) all the boxes.

Then use "Disk Defragmenter" Under system tools.

Oh, and happy birthyesterday(i think) Biggus. :beer:

Theres always the huge amount of tempfiles left behind. Download and install CrapCleaner to remove some of them.

There's another folder in C:\Documents and Settings\ that takes up a lot of space, I think its the "UserData" folder. I must of saved 1.5 gig from clearing it out. I made a backup of it though, in case it jacked on me. I found it through the shear size. Googled it to see if the contents was safe to delete, it said "yeah, just make a backup blah blah"

Is it the "UserData" folder?

Maybe that would help gimpnumber2 a bit...
