    Hi fgabriel

    You don't say if your PC is a laptop or Desktop.
    It would also help to give better advice to know the OS

    So assuming this is a desktop PC. You have two choices with that message.

    1) Remove old hardly used programs using add remove programs in control panel.
    Assuming the OS is Win 98 you can use windows Disk Cleanup Manager. To clean up all your temp file.
    An how to on this can be found here Running Disk Clean up in Windows 98
    Transfer some of your picture,music or document file to a USB flash drive or USB external Drive.

    2) Or install an additional hard drive to give you extra disc space.

    My recommendation would be (if its a desktop) to first clean up present drive.
    By removing old unused programs and install an additional hard drive.
    With a additional drive installed will then have enough space do your downloads.
    You can also do a backup of your present drive and help to protect your important files should your main drive fail.

    If your PC is a laptop the option (1) will be your best solution.

    If you need any advice or help on this please post back
