Low disk space in Windows XP but I only had less program.
I only have 8 programs.. Mozilla Firefox, Stardock, YM and such. I keep on deleting the programs because it always says "Low disk space" and I only had 1MB left. I checked the properties of the computer and it stated that I used 20GB w/c I think wasn't used by me.

Re: Low disk space in Windows XP but I only had less...
Is your computer's "automatic updates" on? With all the available updates the window's size come upto 12Gb. And if you haven't changed the Windows Page file area it would use your C:/ by default. Try changing the page file area. Go to Properties in My computer>Advanced TAB>Performance "click on settings">Advanced>Under "virtual memory" click change. And change the location of virtual memory to some other drive. And also do not forget to select "no paging file" for Drive which is low in memory.
Try this it might work.
And yes, as asked by Bonji5555, run file clean up once in a while. and defragment your disks. There are many free disk defragmentors available over the net, google and find one for yourself. Windows have a built in defragmenter but its really slow.

Try going to dll-files.com and download the necessary file. Copy that file to C:\Windows\System. Hopefully this works for you. If not, you could also reinstall Windows which will reinstall the necessary files.
Open Mozilla Firefox and press ALT Key on your keyboard. Now you can see All the menus appearing in Mozilla Firefox. To keep the setting steady, Right click on any empty space above Mozilla Firefox ( near menus like file, help etc) and select option Menu bar. Now its done.. See the pic below
Yes it does take a while, especially if you haven't cleared your temp files and cache for a while. Download the following free program called Ccleaner and run it. It will get rid of all your useless files and clean up your desk. With luck, this will speed up your firefox boot up time. You will also gain disk space!
if you are using windows Xp, click on start >control panel>add remove programs and from the list select Mozilla firefox and click remove.
Restart your computer and click on the E icon for internet explorer.
If you donnot want to remove mozilla but need to use Internet explorer , download the latest interent explorer from the site below http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/default.aspx
The problem seems to be conflict in the .dll file "NPSWF32.dll" and it's association with the Windows Registry. The registry key of the flash player for Mozilla Firefox is damaged/corrupted. So you have to uninstall Flash Player: (Follow both the steps.) Step-1: First uninstall through ADD/REMOVE Programs from controls panel. Step-2: Then download the Adobe Flash Player uninstaller from here. Now close both Firefox and Internet Explorer. Then run the uninstaller tool. After uninstalling, restart your PC. Now open the firefox and go to http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/ to install the latest version flash player. Remember: Whenever you are installing or uninstalling flash player you must log on to windows as Administrator to perform and troubleshoot this type of issue.
Hi there, There is a free program called ncleaner that I use to free up space on Windows. It properly deletes all unnecessary files on your system, and can also 'shred' the free space on the system, and clean up redundant registry entries. I swear by it. you can download it from here: http://www.nkprods.com/ncleaner/
Another trick is to go to My Computer > C: > Program Files > Java, and delete older versions of Java. Leave the most recent one (ie the highest number), but when Java updates it doesn't delete older versions, which can increasingly take up space on your hard drive.
I would recommend ncleaner as essential, and the Java deletion method as optional. After you have cleaned the drive and the registry etc. with ncleaner you might be able to get a little more space back by defragmenting the hard drive. Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Defragmenter and then press Defragment. This is something you should be doing occasionally anyway.
Try and keep around 15% of your hard drive free at all times to avoid the system from slowing down and hanging up. You could burn all your media files onto disk, or move them onto a USB stick, and then delete them from the hard drive.
First, uninstall the My Web Search option
from Add/Remove Programs 1) Click on Start, Settings, Control Panel 2) Double click on Add/Remove Programs 3) Find "My Web Search" in the
list of installed programs and click on Change/Remove to uninstall it. You may
also want to uninstall any of the following items associated with FunWebProducts. ·My Web Search (Smiley Central or FWP product as applicable) ·My
Way Speedbar (Smiley Central or other FWP as
Way Speedbar (AOL and Yahoo Messengers) (beta users
Way Speedbar (Outlook, Outlook Express, and IncrediMail) ·Search
Assistant - My Way 4) Reboot your Computer and run HijackThis 5) With HijackThis,
scan for and fix any of the entries shown above that may be remaining. 6) Next, open My Computer, Drive C, and
double-click on the Program Files folder 7) Right-click and delete the folders for: ·FunWebProducts ·MyWebSearch 8) MyWebSearch
should now be completely uninstalled from your computer. 9) There will be some minor registry
entries left behind by the uninstall, however these can be cleaned up by
running SpyBot Search
and Destroy or Ad-Aware
SE or left alone.
If unable to remove from control panel, then try to remove them after rebooting PC in Safe mode..
