    The other day I accidently deleted Bluestacks and since I didn't uninstall the apps-I now have no way of uninstall the apps because I can't reinstall it on the main drive because of "no room" on the main drive. Does anyone know of a way to free the main drive up a bit until I can get a gaming computer?

    What did you actually delete? Because it sounds like you just deleted a shortcut to it, and the Bluestacks program and associated files are still there taking up the space on the HDD. If you're using a Mac, you'll find Bluestacks in Applications, and if you're using Windows, it's probably in Program Files, and you should be able to run it from there.

    I don't use Windows myself these days. I'm totally macOS and Linux since 2006. :) But I know with RegEdit(editing the Registry), if you get that wrong, you could end up with a system that doesn't boot and having to reinstall Windows. So be careful!.

    Check the Control Panel > Installed programs, and see if Bluestacks is registered as being installed there, and that might allow you to clear it. You'll find the Bluestacks EXE program itself under /Program Files/Bluestacks, along with the associated files. Try deleting that or moving it to temporary storage off the PC like to a USB hard-drive or USB thumb-drive, and that might give you enough free space to reinstall Bluestacks the normal way.

    Bluestacks on a Mac requires about 8GB, I presume it's similar for Windows.
