I wont suggest any other software or application to do it, instead Windows itself has a quite useful utility that automates the process of cleaning up your hard disk drives. The Disk Cleanup utility present by default on your Windows PC can be used to free up disk space and remove all the unwanted temporary files. The steps are given below with screen shots:

Than you can see the Disk Cleanup button to right side of the pie chart showing the disk usage. Click on it and it will start analyzing your disk for unwanted files.
After it is done analyzing the disk for all the unwanted files, it will show you the window with all the categories of files and the space they are taking on the disk. It will also show the total amount of disk space that you can free. You can see it is showing 667 MB below in the screenshot. Check all the boxes and click OK.
