Um I would get a bigger Hard Drive........
Also try a disk Defragment which should take a while if you never did it before and you should get a gb or 2 out of it.

The space doesn't really make the computer go slower but if your Hard drive is fragmented(means theres a bunch of pieces of data all scattered all over the hard drive)it can slow down its seeking time(time it takes to find things).

So if I where you i would get CCleaner, Do a defragment, and delete other crap that you don't need.

Don't forget to go to "Start", "Program's", ""Accessories, " System Tools", " Disc Cleanup" to free some space if you already have'nt..
