XP disk cleanup - how long should it take?

When I try to run disk cleanup it took so long (over 45 minutes) that I assumed it must have frozen and cancelled it. Using the similar utility on W98 didn't take any time at all.
Is there a trick to it, or do I need to wait an hour or so?

Thanks - it was hanging so I've followed your link and have made the necessary changes to the registry and am now off to cleanup :)

I don't know how I'd cope without all the wonderful people on this forum

thanks again
