Disk space problem

For a while now I have had problems with my computer "locking up" when I am on the internet. For the past couple days it happened every time I tried to get to one of my iVillage boards (Why one and not the other or any other iVillage boards?)
This morning I got this message:
Your Windows drive has only 3 MB of free disk space available. This is a critically low amount of disk space.
System Restore has suspended tranching changes to your computer because ther eis not enough disk space available. This means that System Restore will not be able to undo harmful changes if they occur.
To reactivate System Restore, free at least 200 MB of disk space. You can free even more disk space by removing programs that you do not use.
I checked Add/Remove Programs. It really doesn't look as though I have that much on there! I deleted one game I just added that had only 10-15 MB and I deleted one graphics program reluctantly.

I checked again. I ran disk cleanup which said everything was fine, so I ran defrag to see what would happen. When I ran defrag, it said that I have 80% disk space free!!! Why would I get that other message? I also checked the pie chart that I get when I right-click on the C drive of My Computer. That was pretty much the same. Only about 20% blue, but when I looked a little bit earlier it was all blue.
What else should I think about? I'm concerned about the earlier message.
