Real cure is larger HD, but...

If you have pgms. starting from the 'C' drive, relocate them to 'D' by actual installation. Whatever pgm., install it on 'D' drive. Then swap the data to same directories from 'C' in order to not lose anyhting. Once complete you can then delete that previously installed 'C' pgm. if all OK. Do a backup as a safegurad beforehand. But, if you continue to have space problems, you need a larger HD, as 60Gb(your size?) appears to be at the edge. Another way to gain quick, provided you haven't, is to clean the HD of old system files, I use CCleaner:
These files aren't anything to worry about it just some house cleaning and can be subtainal if never done, besides the XP own disk cleaning routine, you'll do better with ccleaner. Look into that...

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
