First of all, what size hdd do you have and what other programs do you have installed?
Did you check how much space Itunes does not take up much room at all.
Have you cleared temp files and temp internet files? Take a look at your other programs inc data files and see what space they too are using.

Try system restore to a point before you installed iTunes.

Download treesize for free click here. It works on XP and vista.

It will show you what space is taken in all your folders on the hard drive.

Start > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore. That is in XP but would think it is similar if you are using Vista.
