    I made a 40gb partition for bootcamp to run Windows 7. The isntall itself feels like about 10+ gb. I isntalled modern warfare 2 and a few other games from steam and dont really have much space left.

    Is there anything I can do to slim down my windows 7 partition? I really dont want to repartition.

    I've refused my page file to half of my system memory, turned off system restore, turned off hibernation, turned off windows search. Ran disk cleanup and also ran CCleaner.

    Any tips would greatly be appreciated!

    You pretty much as is. You can adjust the size of your Windows without reformating it in MacOS or in Windows 7 now. Give your Windows more space.

    If you play video games, your Modern Warfare itself takes up 10GB+. Whatever utility you use like disabling things and minor adjustments, it would only save you a few hundred MB and it will get fill up weeks later.
