Free memory space error

  sambora77 16:23 14 Jan 2008

I was wondering if anyone can help. I've an 80GB laptop however my system states that i need to free up memory as I've only got 1% left. This messege comes up even after deleting programs, films and music where surely i have created more memory. I've purchased Kaspersky to search for viruses however no success.
I would be grateful for any info.
Many thanks

have you rebooted lately? some progs hog memory and keep it even after the prog has been switched off. A reboot normally sorts this out.

I think the issue is hard-drive space. try Ccleaner click here and something to visually display disk usage. click here

Thanks for the advise so far
I'm assuming that a reboot will cause me to loose all my save files. If I transfer stuff to a hard drive will any problems be transfered?
Guess i'll need to get a hard drive first, lol
