Is the space restored when you reboot?

i would imagine it is because you have a small amount of memory and you are using the virtual memeory (which in fact is hard drive space), if thats the case then a memory upgrade would sort it out fairly cheaply. if not then maybe its something not quite so nice such as virus/trojan infection.

let us know some more details about your system and we should have a better idea.

for a start though, goto trend micro housecall and do a free online scan. click here
