    My new computer which has quite a few big games and fies on it is at 102gb/918gb. My vista computer has hardly anything on it says my whole account is only using 11gb. buy says the computer is at 116gb/451gb. also while sitting at desktop says it says im using over half my ram. Oh and while i got yall here everytime i try to do something it says I need admin permission but im on my admin account and its the only account on the computer. Oh and it says im using 7.8gb on my D drive were as my newer windows 7 says im using 0b. Any ideas? im just trying to use the old computer for storing files and stuff like that but if theres a major issue or something id like it fixed before i start filling it full of my information and personal pctures. Thanks ahead of time.

    Clear "junk" files.

    Hello from Olde Farte,

    Grab Hard Drive Powerwash (freeware). Been using it for a few years, it works - gets rid of all the .bak and .old, and .log etc files.

    Wise Disk Clean and Wise Registry Clean are very good as well.

    Browse Snapfiles for a few other good "clean up" utils.

    Cheers,

    OLde Farte

    I suspect you have something installed or left over which is taking up a ton of space, along with old logs and things :)
