Windows Vista taking up 45+ GB

hi... first post here. I've had to reinstall Win Vista on my PC and after SP1&SP2 updates it's used 45GB of 80GB onmy drive, is that normal? Anything that can be doen to claim back some storage space? It's only the OS, Chrome and AntiVirus software on the PC, so I'd expect to have more space left, or is that wishful thinging on an old Win Vista PC?

Cheers for any advice.

It's probably created c:\windows.old

Start Search Disk Cleanup

Before you run disk cleanup, check the folder for any documents, photos etc. you might not have backed up. It's like a second chance if you like.
