Where has all of the space on my computer gone?

Question

Can't defrag my hard drive. Two weeks earlier it had about

60% free space, now it shows only 7% free. This after removing several programs and files.

When I try to defrag, it tells me there is not enough space to run defrag. when analized the results show mostly

red defragmented files.

I have run adaware and spybot, no spyware here. I run my virus program on auto, no problems there either.

Where could all of the space gone? What can I do?
