Run the Disk CleanUp utility.
You can find it in Start->All Programs->Accessories->System Tools.

And perhaps you should remove any and all unused software, like toolbars and crap like that.
While you're at it, install and run SpyBot Search And Destroy. It will detect and remove any and most malware/spyware/crap-ware/tracking-cookies that has been installed both with or without your knowledge.

Have you saved music (is your iTunes set to sync to the PC as well as your iPod, as an example)?

Have you downloaded / saved any TV programs or do you have books for a Kindle or Nook?

Knowing your OS is important to answering this question. If you have XP, in example, you may be able to delete some of the uninstall directories related to Windows Update and gain space.

Speaking of ... have you looked in your downloads directory? Some people never check this and find multiple copies of every email attachment there.

If you have an extra hard drive, even if its not a large drive, you can plug it into your computer and configure Windows to move the pagefile to this other drive. This could release 1GB+ of space on the system drive.

In addition, having the pagefile on a seperate drive increases performance of the system.
