Disk cleanup prob?

  Lord_Anubis 13:15 18 Nov 2003

I'm running a windows XP (Home) laptop and recently disk cleanup has been having a problem, it starts and the progress bar just sits there, i have left it for (at times) upto 20 minutes but all this results in is the fans swirly rapidly (because disk cleanup is running 100% processor power). Plus when u try to stop cleanup using the cancle button it remains actively running as a process (still using 100% processor power)

2) Disk Cleanup Tool Stops Responding While Compressing Old Files | click here

3) Disk Cleanup Utility Stops Responding | click here

Go for 3 ;-)

Thanks, that seems to have fixed the problem, though cleanup no longer compresses old files :( but i shall have to live with that wont I :P
