    Did you do it from Disk cleanup ? I had to do it twice before it actually cleaned it out. It's at second page of Disk Cleanup under "Clean up system files".

    Check your C: disk, there should not be Windows.old folder any more. It was this folder that contained "Old windows installation"

    Well, I am not at your computer and don't know what exactly is there, Just look if there are some large leftover folders or files. You can also try using: UnCleaner - Josh Cell Softwares it's very safe cleaner. Gets rid of large Temp. files etc.
