    The 37 Gig HD on my Laptop says that it has 7.9 Gig of used space. I have
    only had it for a few weeks and I estimate that there is only 3.7 - 4 Gig of
    stuff (very high-tech term) on it. I'm Running XP and have Defragged the
    drive. Any Thoughts?

    System restore points??
    Delete all but the last if you have SR enabled.
    Run a search for both Temp files and files over 100mb.
    Check and delete where applicable.
    HTH!
