    Windows has lots of hidden files of which you generally dont want to remove.

    You could try installing ccleaner and giving that a go. Make sure to go through all the cleaning options and untick the ones you want to keep.

    In the cleaner section I generally only have internet cache ticked and compact database ticked where available.

    Its also up to you whether you wish to use the registry cleaner. I've been using ccleaner for years without issue.

    What is the size of your hard drive? I note that you say you're on Vista? We do have a sister forum which deals with that OS.

    300gb hard drive can easily be filled these days, I could fill it in a flash!

    Another program that may be able to help is SpaceSniffer, find lost disk space the easy way., It can show you the size of your folders and files.

    When you use disk cleanup, click on button to remove old sytem files, and at popup screen, check all checkboxes.
