It appears that the C dirve is using 98% of space. Let us try to delete some temporary files, to do so, click Start Menu> Run> type %temp% and hit enter. It will open the temporary folder, delete all the files listed in this folder. Now, again click Start> Run> type prefetch and hit enter, it will open the prefetch folder, delete all the files listed on it. It should take care of the issue.
