Looks good, if you have a lot of programs installed, then the system32 folder gets bigger, but you should be able to get rid a a few more things :p

I am looking through all the files and deleting what I dont think is needed, if I find a large group of files or folders you can remove, I will post it here :p

I could get 2k down to 300mb, but it doesnt work on my computer :(

I dont know WTF is up with that, because my computer came with 2k :(

But, I am hoping to get XP as small and fast as possable :p

To see the other folders, show all files/folders, and OS Protected files, then they will show up :p

For the help folder, I denied access to it for the system (NTFS Options) then rebooted, and you can delete it :p

When you are posting, under Attach Files... Select the file you want attached, and neowin will host it on there server for you :p
