Windows 7 - What is using all my disk space

I only have a 160GB drive installed in my workstation. 130GB of it is being used and I did not think I had that much software installed. I do have two virtual machines (XP and Vista) but they are only base operating systems.

Is there a way or a tool that will show what is consuming the majority of my hard disk?

Thanks

Features
WinDirStat reads the whole directory tree once and then presents it in three useful views:

The directory list, which resembles the tree view of the Windows Explorer but is sorted by file/subtree size,
The treemap, which shows the whole contents of the directory tree straight away,
The extension list, which serves as a legend and shows statistics about the file types.
Coupling. Select an item in the directory list: The treemap highlights it; and vice versa.
Zooming.
Built-in cleanup actions including Open, Show Properties, Delete.
User-defined cleanups (command line based).

There are few tools that do it. One of it is Glary utilities

http://download.cnet.com/Glary-Utilities/3000-2094_4-10508531.html?tag=mncol

go to Modules > Files & Folder > Disk Analysis

it will give you good details on files folders occupying the space
