JohnHelp you only get those results if you do NOT go to a cmd prompt.
Going to a cmd prompt results in the following which is clear to see below. It never "disappears" even if you hit enter.
It should look like this: [though this is edited and from a vista laptop]
Windows has checked the file system and found no problems.

Please try again.
if you still can't do it then do a
chkdsk > checkdisk.txt and copy and paste the contents of the check disk file here.
Please re-read my post and that of the OP's first post. The issue I was addressing was the file system NEVER reserves space for a program. How could it? It doesn't have the brains to read a programs requirement. Only programs can reserve space. For example you make a sql database of 10gig. It reserves 10gig of disk space but you may only have 4k of data in the database. This is an example of what a program can do. This is not something the file system can do.
