You may find the windows installer folder is using over 15gb of storage. under windows xp you can use the msi cleaner tool to clear up the folder. do not attempt to remove the files manually you have been warned. This tool may work on windows vista and 7 , but I have not personally tested this.

M$ Reference

Tool name: msizap.exe
Tool name: msicuu.exe

You will need to download both files and placed them in the same directory . Then run the msizap.exe . Files have been scanned for virus, to be sure on your end scan again before running.
