Disk Cleanup Lock-Up

  basedrone 22:28 29 Jan 2007

Having exactly the same problem with Disk Cleanup that Chrisbenwalker wrote about on an earlier thread.

Tried Ccleaner which cleared masses of junk but still the Cleanup gets stuck at 3 green dots and ‘Scanning: Compress Old Files’. Have to use CTRL-ALT-DEL to the Task Mgr to end the process.

I believe that there is a way to fix by changing the registry but I’m a bit wary of doing this.

Any advice?

Oops, sorry fingers engaged before brain. Is it absolutely necessary to run CCleaner /and/ Disk Cleanup? Life's too short, shurely...
