Default windows xp

I up graded from ME to XP Home, I have hardly any programs on this computer. but out of 6gigs, I only have 750mb of space left. Is it possile that ME was not deleted. The computer runs extreamly slow. How would I find out whats on the computer? In the add & remove programs only show less than 1 gig. Thanks in advance.

I suppose that's possible. Did you reformat when installing Windows XP? I believe Windows takes about 2GB or so. On my copmuter it takes 1.92GB.

but in the windows xp boot disc again. then delete all the partitions that are on thje hd. then reinstall windows. seems like you never reformatted your hd, but instead turned your hd into a multi os hd. tht shud clear it right up
