block ups pop ups and full recovery drives

Hi there,
Two problems here, both related.
Am running Vista home premium, Dell inspiron 531
My D: system recovery is full 9.999 GB. I have tried to free up space. i.e. deleting unnecessary restore points, but to know avail. Have also tried re configuring the back up from everyday to weekly. It does not seem to accept it. What can I do to free up space. Have tried to contact Microsoft, but we all know where that gets us.
The other problem is, I keep getting annoying information balloons popping up every five minutes telling me my recovery drive is full (JEEZ I KNOW ITS FULL) and another balloon pops up telling me that windows has blocked some start up programs, I know, because I blocked them. Can anybody give me some info here, it is driving me crazy.
