False low disk space message

Specs: Windows XP, dont know
Hi,
I keep getting a little Yellow Shield Icon appearing in lower right hand toolbar(next to the time) everytime I put my laptop on. When I scroll over this icon it says that it's downloading updates for my computer. The funny thing is it is always at 33% (a very masonic number) and a message tells me that I have low disk space. If I close the low disk space messsage another will appear moments later saying Critical disk space and then No Disk Space! But If I click on Disk Defrag it says I've had the same disk space all along. So this message is obviously false but still very irritating. How the hell do I get rid of it??
Thanks in advance,
Stuart

How much disk space do you have left and what is the total size of the hard drive ?
