    turn off system restore ,restart then turn it on again .do a cleanup then defrag and look again.
    not forgetting , 64 bit takes up several GB more than 32bit anyway.

    Yes I agree with you but remember that you restore it then may be your latest installed application will be removed and there is not any option to save so you must take this risk.
