it may be due to some viruses. download the Tuneup utilities and run Disk doctor(use thorough analysis). Ur problem will get cleared.

Its better not to touch C:\ drive , since it has the system files. U can view the file distributions by the same tuneup utils. run disk space explorer and find out which file is occupying more space.
