Hi all.

I'd like to query something on Vista. It just so happened that Vista or something has eaten up over 4GB of disk space within 10mins of me rebooting my pc.
Does anyone know where the temp files are now kept because I can't see anything in the app folder under my user profile. Also, what could possibly be needing more than 4GB of disk space after start up? This happened before and happens infrequently.

Currently have less than 3GB of disk space available to use when usually there's around 8-10GB free.

Try running ccleaner. That should find a good bit of stuff for you.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
