Error Messages: xp low disk space warnings

this pc has been running more or less fine for a couple of years but lately i have been getting C: drive low disk space warnings. i have 2 physical hdd's , xp is installed on the first, the other is partitioned into 2 drives.

what i cant understand is that i freed up about 5gig last nite, and 20minutes later it was completely full again! i mean FULL - 0 bytes free. and i've been deleting/removing programs etc ever since , but it just keeps filling up again.

i have scanned for viruses using trend micro, ran scandisk, and defragged C:

any thoughts appreciated

Have you tried to disable Windows System Restore? Everything you uninstall/delete will be stored in a system restore point, which a) takes up quite a bit of space, b) can be a pain in the neck.

Select Start followed by Control Panel, and double-click the System icon. Then:
1. Click the System Restore tab on the System dialog box
2. To disable, select the Turn off System Restore check box
3. Click OK when done
4. Reboot
