Is it actually normal that when you remove files, do a whole disk cleanup and disinstall numerous programs you loose disk space?

I'll tell the whole story...
This morning I decided to add a little disk space since the drive C always indicated to have 2,95 GB and yet I couldn't install the game Ultima Online which needs only 300 MB.
I first did a scandisk and repaired some errors... and what happens? I check the amount of free disk space and it tells me 309MB! Does this maybe mean that the whole time the 2,95 GB was a mistake?
Well, I thought so and consequently I deleted numerous files, disinstalled almost all programs I had installed since I bought this laptop,... and managed to free up to 900 MB!
But then, when I restart the computer, the drive C: indicates that I have just 51MB of free space.
To come up to here I disinstalled even many necessary files, so please could somebody explain to me this anomaly?
Thanks,

Treshan

hmmmm... actually not!
I am not very keen on using Antiviruses after having
seen their effects on other computers of mine.
I only ONCE installed McAffee AV to checkup, but that
was long ago...
