I totally agree with you that there is a problem with Vista. I have too Vista but I never use it, I can say because hardly I use Vista due to many problem, unnecessary download and up-gradation is the basic problem. Well, games acquires more spaces and therefore your GB's decreasing. Some of the games are of 2-5 GB. So I think if you have problem spacing then download as minimum games as you can. This will help you more free space where you can use it for your important requirement.

My Friend I think you have not installed any utility that automatically deletes your backups & system restore points.Deletion of these files doesn't harm your system in any way.I think you should Install Tune UP utility that automatically deletes these files & maintain your C: & other drive's space.

Yeah, its not so much the computer that is the problem...its Vista. I won't buy a new computer because I won't part with WinXP. I would recommend either getting the Windows 7 upgrade, which is the new operating system, or paying to downgrade back to XP. You will have nothing but trouble with Vista. My mother-in-law had a dell with vista on it, and I was always fixing something for her cause. Good luck!
