Go to Start> search and search for Windows Explorer (if you don't already have it on your desktop). Right click the entry in search for explorer.exe that shold be in c:\windows. Right click on that file name and from the menu select Send to and select 'Desktop (create shortcut)'. This program can be used to look at your hard drive. Click on a folder to see the files within, if they come up as icons, then select the 'Views' icon from the explorer toolbar and select details. This will show you size, when created, etc. If you click on the size (or any) column the details will be sorted ascending order and click again to sort decending order

SequoiaView click here will give you a visual representation of the files on your hard drive.

You will be able to pick out any large files easily.
