Question about Computers & Internet
My laptop is slow and whenever I try to watch a video it cuts off. The words, "low disk space" keeps popping up even though I press the button to clean the files. I've opened the my computer and I see Acer (C:) It has 0% free space. Underneath acer (C:) it says 8.35 MB free of 33.5 GB. I also see Data (D:) underneath data d I see 33.1 GB free of 33.2 GB. The last thing I see is something that says unspecified, and underneath it it says DVD RW Drive (E:). I don't know what to do next. If someone can help me proceed I would appreciate it.
In response to you, It has been working fine until the past two days. The words "low disk space" has shown up before but whenever I would press the button to clean up files it would work fine, but now it pops up all the time. If you can show me where to go to find C:\WINDOWS folder, I will proceed with what you recommended.

Has your laptop been working fine otherwise -- I mean, before the low disk space problems? If so, then I would suggest clearing out your Windows Update files, first. They are located in the C:\WINDOWS\ folder. For the most part, the filenames will begin and end with "$" (EX: $NtUninstallKB887472$).
If you have rebooted within the last few days (MS updates came out last Tuesday) and haven't seen any problems, then it should be safe to delete ALL of the $xxxxxx$ files in the C:\WINDOWS folder. If you have not rebooted or if you've had other problems, let's go another route. Reply back and let me know... and we'll go from there.
If this does not solve the problem, please don't rate the answer. I have other ideas, if we need to proceed in another direction.
