Mis-reading of space left on disk!!

  xoc 17:39 08 Feb 2005

In trying to install an application
I get the message "This software requires 1.5mb===but your system has only .1mb of disk space" which is crazy as I have 2.15 GB free on my one and only drive!
I have tried changing the virtual memory settings from Windows control to "Let me specify my own" but, when I re-boot, find that it has reverted to "Let windows manage"
Have also defragged, scandisked and tried installing in safe mode, but to no avail!
I would welcome any suggestions for a solution.
