1. Log in with your administrator account
2. Press the Windows Key along with the R letter key on your keyboard. Alternatively you can click on Start and click Run.
3. Type in Regedit in the box that opens
4. Using the column on the left hand side click on the little plus sign to the left of HKEY_CURRENT_USER, then Software, followed by Microsoft (you'll have to scroll down a little bit) > Windows > Current Version > Policies> Explorer
5. Double click on NoLowDiskSpaceChecks
6. If low disk space checking is enabled, then the value in the box that pops up will be 1. Change this value to 0 and click OK.
7. To enable the option again, go back to the same area listed in step 4 double click NoLowDiskSpaceChecks and click ok.

Check the hdd free space, if u ask me there's no need to disable it(low disk space warning user there's not enough space left).U mention u have nothing on your system, try to clear system restore files sometimes they consume alot of space.

Are you sure you didn't re-install Windows into a new folder and all your old stuff is still on the partition.

Open My Computer and post how many MB are used and how much space is left.
