    Well, here's a few things you could do:

    1: Run a virus scan.

    2: Try the disk defragmenter. My computer was lagging like hell, until I used that.

    3: Disk Cleanup.


    If none of these work, get a new computer.
    If relief is what you seek, head to the children's orphanage, and take a leak.

    Try Avast for the virus scan. Degragment the hardrive, and possibly reformat if the problem still persists.

    Or just get a new comp. Sometimes computers send you secret messages that they're getting too old by not working.

    Yeah. Try Avast, though it's a heavy software.

    Try deleting any unnecessary files and programs, music, video and picture files take a heck of alot of space.

    Delete the temporary files, defrag your hard drives and if still continues, clean from viruses or just update to newer hardware. ;)

    I have 2 XP's from the 2000's my brother is a student in train school in another town he took one. I only have one PC now and a 360. A new computer, would be nice since the other ones quite not so great but i think my parents won't allow it since i already got a 360.

    I don't think there's anyway you could possibly make you computer run faster if it's from the 90s. Most modern programs require a lot of disk space, probably an amount a 90s computer would struggle to give.

    You'd really need to attach an external hardrive, or RAM or something. I don't really know, I don't know much about computers. But if you're using a computer that old, I'd assume there's little you can do.

    Try and run Crysis for a laugh.

    Default Reasons why you have low space in your hard drive

    1) A virus
    2) A lot of temp files
    3)Restore point of the sistem
    4)fragmented files
    5)Hibenation mode active
    6)A lot of junk in the recicle byn
    7)A lot of older files in the system
    8)Executable programs like nero opened and never deleted from the sistem

    And i can continue but this are the principals reasons
