The reason is that you might installed many unwanted or unused programs.
you have written that you have eliminated the programs. means you deleted them or uninstalled them. deleting the start menu entries will not delete the software. you have to go to start->controlpanel->add or remove programs,
then uninstall the programs which you dont need.
and there is no need to install the windows again.
if you deleted the start menu entries. then also you can uninstall the software by the above method. if that didn't work try to delete carefully the softwares that you don't require in the program files folder.
WARNING: DELETING SYSTEM FILES AND RESOURCES WILL LEAD TO FAILURE OF THE SYSTEM.

Averatec 7100 laptop factory recovery disc


Most times the recovery discs don't work. Why not just get an operating system disk and reinstall the operating system?

Have you tried doing a System Restore? System Restore will let you select a Restore Point (date and time) before you started having problems. System Restore will not delete your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was installed after the Restore Point you selected). System Recovery on the other hand will delete everything and set your system back to the point when you first purchased it.

To start System Restore click Start/Programs or Start/All Programs. Click Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. When it opens you will have the option to select another restore point (date and time) than the one shown.

How to use System Recovery console (steps)


Starting a Recovery

Turn on the computer and immediately begin pressing the F10 key repeatedly until a Recovery Screen appears.
You can also start a recovery from recovery discs, or from Windows. For more information refer to Performing a Full System Recovery in Windows XP .

Recovery is taking too long
If your computer stops responding after using the recovery program, do the following:

NOTE:If the computer appears to have stopped responding after restarting from a recovery, please wait, it may take several hours or longer to complete the initial Windows XP setup process, especially if a recovery was run from a recovery disc set sent by HP. A Standard recovery may also take longer, depending on how many files are stored in user accounts (like in My Documents ).

1 Exit the stalled recovery process by pressing the POWER button on the PC until the power turns off, this takes approximately five seconds.
2 Before recovering, disconnect personal media drives, printers, scanners, cameras, camera-type memory cards, and other devices that did not originally come with the PC.
3 If you are using recovery discs, be aware of the following items:
4 If you created the recovery discs using Recovery CD Creator, be sure to run the recovery from the same drive that you used to create the discs.
5 Clean the discs with a soft, clean, lint-free cloth wetted with distilled water. Wipe from the center of the disc to the outside edge. You may also use disc cleaning kits or disc restoration kits from your local computer store. These kits produce better results than using cloth and water.
6 You may also use available CD/DVD Drive cleaning kits to clean the laser reading lens of the CD or DVD drive.
Try running a full system recovery again from the hard drive by turning the on the computer and pressing the F10 key until a Recovery Screen appears. This performs the recovery from the hard drive.
7 If the recovery stops when recovering from the hard drive, use the section Disc errors occur during the recovery process to eliminate errors on the drive. Try recovering again after the disk errors are removed.

ONLY 650 MB OUT OF ONE TERABYTE lacie all terrain


For anyone else that runs into this issue, you don't need the EXE.

Follow the instructions on here to get to the Storage control panel area on your computer so you can view partitions:
http://www.ehow.com/how_5022760_check-partitions-hard-drive.html

Locate your LaCie drive, and delete the small partition that shows as "Healthy". Once you delete that, you should have a large "Unallocated" space. Format that normally using either FAT32 or NTFS. Your drive will now have its full allocation (which with a 500GB drive, should be around 465GB, give or take depending on the system accessing it).

I don't have the recovey disck, the netbook need tis disck for recovery Thank you


To get a recovery disc for your computer you will have to contact the manufacturer and request one. You can do this by going to the company's website, inputting your computers information that they ask for and you will be directed to a page that has to do with everything on your computer (drivers, updates, & etc). In the list of all the stuff you should see Recovery Discs listing in there somewhere. From there you should be able to order a set of recovery discs. You could just find the "contact us" or "about us" area and find the company's phone number and then give them a call and order them that way as well. Have your computer near you when you call or try to do it online, because you will be asked alot of stuff about your computer, such as, the: Make, Model, Serial Number, & etc. The Recovery discs may cost you some money, but it's usually within the $25 - $50 range.

Disk says not enough space on disk to finilize?


Each time you execute finalization, the disc remaining space will decrease by approximately 13 MB. If you don’t have enough room, it won’t allow you to finalize the disc.
To finalize this disc, you have to delete some pictures to make enough space. But don’t worry, before you delete those pictures, you can save them to your computer.
Find out the CDs came with your camera, refer your manual page 51 - 61 to install ‘PIXELA PTP Manager’ , connect your camera and computer with USB cable, and copy some pictures to your computer, then delete the pictures on camera side. If still not enough room, copy more and delete more. make it enough to do the finalization.

System recovery not working


If you have windows xp, here is what you can do>>
This is called a "system recovery" (destructive)
I do not have the disk either. My windows XP, was already loaded on my computer, when I bought it. These instructions, will clean everything off of your hard drive, so you must back up anything that you want to save. I have done this three times, and I got these instructions, from a computer tech. When starting your computer, tap the F-10 key. click on next-yes-and follow the instructions, that come up on your screen. When you are finished, your computer, will look just like it did, when you first bought it. Do these steps, in order, when finished.
1. set up windows firewall
2. windows update (click express)
3. install your anti-virus program (update)
4. install anti-spyware (update)
5. Install service pack 2...Good Luck..
All your drivers etc. will reload on your computer, without a disk. All this information is stored on a hidden partition .. Good Luck

When you install the program, does it give you more than 1 install Option? Most programs will give you 3 install options depending on how much disc space you want to use for that program. Typical, Custom, Full. If you haven't done so, I recommend uninstalling, reinstalling using the FULL install or Custom so you can pick and choose which features aren't necessary for you to have. If this works, excellent, it it doesn't, I am sorry, but hopefully it gives you a little bit of insight.

CD-R are record only- use once.
Whilst 'Removing'  data makes it unavailable  you do not get the space back.
Example suppose you had 500 Mb on a 700 Mb disc.
Giving 200 mb  space to use .
'Removing' some or all the the 500 will not get  space back
it simple makes the file unreadable - does not remove it.

CD-RW's are rewritable, but are considered  unreliable
