Just to clarify, you are loosing harddrive space at a rate of 1 GB/day??? I would check you Back-up options,
\015\012
\015\012System Restore Settings- (creates back-up files everytime something is installed). Depending on your version of windows you can acces the system restore setting from the control panel, or start->programs->accessories->system tools->system restore.
\015\012 - from here you can set the amount of harddrive space dedicated to system restore.
\015\012From what you are describing, you either have a virus, or a program is constantly backing up your harddrive or setting to take up that much space. Do all windows updates to be sure.
\015\012An update after you try these solutions will help
