|i have just run ccleaner as suggested and i it did me almost no good .|
only about 26 MB were recovered ..
my laptop is 1GB RAM
my page file is custom ;
set to MIN=1524 , MAX=3048
please note that it has not been that way earlier , i have changed these settings after i faced that problem ..
it was more like 1300 MIN , and 2200 MAX
my modification didn't do me any good though now did it :(
oh and as for the cited commands ..
"chkdsk /r" didn't work because it gave me something about c: being used in other process
so i did "chkdsk" , here is what i got back
The type of the file system is NTFS.

as for the desk defragment , it says it wont run as efficient as hoped , because i have only 1% of free space on c , while 15 % is needed .. however i will run it and see if it makes any dif. ..
desk cleanup was run all the time and is not that versatile either
btw i looked in the startuo menu and found sth called " Runit_32.exe" located in folder
" C:\Program Files\runit" ,
grrrrr is that a malware ?
one last thing before i forget , i did the search as u told me and i found the c:windows/temp folder has a size of 2.94GB ..
full of files that were "Date Modified " on the SAME DAY AND TIME that i copied the stuff ..
i doubt that this is normal , and if so , tell me what can i delete from this folder because i saw some SUB FOLDERS not FILES( folders like cookies , temp. internet files , history ) that i was affraid to delete
