Should I let the sustem manage mypaging file?

I am starting with your solution first, however since I need at least 2 more gig of space I will probably need to include other solutions too. I am new at Experts exchange and am not sure how to do things on it. Like responding back to a proposed solution, Do I need to start a new question like I am doing now, including checking all the boxes about type, area etc. Anyway, I found the paging file and it was on my C drive but it was only for 1532MB. I changed C. to "No Paging File" and then went to D> which originally was set at "NO Paging File" and I set it to : Initial -1535 and Max-2000. I am not sure really what max should be and just took a guess at 2000MB. The thing is, there is a box for "System Mangaged" and I am wondering if I should check that instead?. I have not restarted my computer yet, am waiting to hear back from you before I do. I will then take your suggestion and reduce the recycle bin. After that If I still don't have enough room I might try that C.Cleaner , though I am nervous about some of these registry cleaner applications. My computer is a laptop so getting rid of the hibernate file might not be somthing I would want to do. Thanks for your help so far, Rick
