You're either going to have to buy a bigger harddrive or delete some stuff I'm afraid.

Have you got a D drive on there? If you have, move anything that's not a program on to there. If you haven't, then you need a bigger hard drive - or buy an external hard drive. You can get these quite cheaply now and with loads of capacity.

Have you emptied the recycle bin as well? You won't get the extra space until thats empty.

I've just bought one of these. It couldn't be easier to use and you can get rid of all the stuff that is clogging up your laptop.

not quite the same thing but I got an ipod recently and it took an age to get itunes loaded and then to get itunes to speak to the ipod. Needed to download the newest version of windows. Then lots of glitches including having to reload all my broadband software. However now it's up and running (DH is in IT thank goodness)it's really fab.

right click on your c drive, choose properties and see how much free space you actually have
