Assuming you have Windows XP:
Go to start-Programs-Accessories-System Tools-Disk Cleanup. Select C: drive. You will have to wait while the program scans the drive. You will then get a list of suggestions for freeing up disk space. You have to click on check boxes to select the options you want. Be sure to look at the "Compress old files" option. Depending on how much data you have stored, that could save a lot of space.
After the cleanup program is finished, right click on the Internet Explorer icon. Select Properties-General-Browsing history-Settings. In the box marked "Disk space to use" reduce the number to 50. This will prevent IE from clogging up your hard drive with temporary files.
