Have a look again in Ccleaner and check how many restore points you have. Found under the tools icon. Sometimes this problem can occur if you have a backup program that goes a bit haywire.

Is that supposed to be 110Mb if it is then the drive is just about full and windows as no room to work. First thing you could do if your PC is working Okay without any other Problems is Turn Restore off on all drive Partitions then turn it back on and create one new restore point. This will give you back some space, You need to find out what is taking up all the drive.

If it is running Vista it could well be restore points though I'd be surprised if they were taking up 232 Gb. I only have a 32Gb system drive on my laptop and SR is constantly eating it up so have to reduce number of restore points regularly

If this is not taken up by your Docs Photos and Music, You have a Virus. As this is one of the ways they work

No restore points? Unusual. Windirstat will show what is filling your HDD. windirstat

Read the help files and see whats on the HDD. Don't use the program to delete anything incase you delete some Windows files. Use it just to 'read' the drive. Might give some indication on what is going on. Might be worth running Ccleaner first to make space for it.
