Angry How do I free up space on my local disk???

Ok I have seen other posts asking the same question I am. I'm trying to download the Sims 2 onto my computer and everytime I try to the window pops up saying I need to free up space. I looked at what other people said to do and none of these things have helped me. I'm really getting frustrated and just want to play my sims. Please help if you can I greatly appreciate it!!!

Have a look at OmniDiskSweeper. It will highlight large files etc that are taking up a lot of space.
