The problem is Windows updates which gradually fill up the partition - I started with XP using around 4Gb and now it uses 9Gb - I haven't added anything in the last five years other than the updates.
Assuming you have cleaned and defragged the partition, see if there are any files or programs you never use which you can get rid of.
BTW the problem arises because Windows has no swap and is looking for somewhere on the hard disk to use for its equivalent of swap.
