Disk Cleanup Problem

  AubreyS 18:11 28 Nov 2003

Hi all.

I've been doing some bits and pieces to a friends' PC. I finished what I needed to do then I ran disk cleanup. It starts to run. It says calculating and three bars appear on the progress and that is as far as it gets. The PC is running XP Pro. Any ideas anyone?

It might take a while it there is a lot to clean.

Does it get to 3 bars then start again? If so, it probably means your hard drive is being written to, possibly by the internet. Unplug the modem and start again.

Hi Spock58.
No it didn't keep restarting it just stayed where it was.

Hi VoG.
Yes that you very much. That worked a treat. Was that something that you knew, or did you do a search? Thanks again.

I knew because it happened to me a few months back. I then did a search of the Knowledgebase and found the "click here".

Same thing happened the other day when I was on PCA. Someone posted a problem and I thought, I know what that is. I had the same problem some time ago.

Thanks again VoG
