    so i went through the WinXP tweak guides, and now i'm having a problem of XP eating up my HD space. i have about 11 gigs free, but after using my computer for a day or two, i'm down to about 3. when i restart, i'm back up to 11, and the cycle continues. i've looked through the guides to see what has caused it, but i really can't find what i'm looking for.

    any ideas what's causing this? how can i fix it?

    Its probably system restore. To turn it off go to start-control panel-system-(tab) system restore and check the box to turn it off. :cheers:
