Try defragmenting the drive.

Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Computer Management>Disk Defragmenter

I assume you are using XP. If you aren't, the way to get there might be different.

dont forget that xp uses a good 1.5gb + once you have all the updates and stuff then you have to count all the installed programs, your files, temp files, etc. try downloading a disk cleaner like this one http://www.diskcleaner.nl/ and running a defrag if you dont already (this is essential)
