First do a disc clean up. Double click My Computer Double click C:\ Drive Disc Cleanup button there are also more options so you can remove all but the latest restore points. Clear Tem files from C:\Windows\temp And IE cache files etc

You have two contradictory statements in your posting.

"loads of space" and "also system show HDD almost full?"

How do you know you have lots of space if the system is saying it is full?

Have you checked things like:

Max Size and amount amount of temporary internet files.

Size of system restore files (if running XP)

Give us an idea of O/S and hard drive sizeplease

I know it sounds incorrect but the system does say the HDD is almost full. Yet it is 40GB. The only software is Office pro a lego constructor game and some anti virus stuff. Is there any chance this could be connected with using the internet? I'm not the only user. I have my own laptop.
