My computer appears to have developed constipation.
the windowes folder on C drive contains over 240 folders designated $ntuninstall each of which contains 4/5 files. How can I get rid of these

Try a System Restore back to before this started.

Are they coloured blue?

If so they are uninstall files for windows updates.
If windows is running OK then delete them.

If you are unsure about deleting them manually, you could download and install Ccleaner and run the "cleaner" process with the Hotfix Uninstallers option checked (be sure to uncheck it again afterwards, otherwise it will continue to remove any further ones of these each time you run Ccleaner).

Note that Ccleaner will also remove many other things by default (e.g Internet History) unless you uncheck the relevant boxes.
