Disc Clean Up Not Working

  chrisbenwalker 21:49 28 Jan 07

Hi all, I have a problem when I try to run disc clean up - it just hangs and says it it compressing files, may take several minutes. I have left it for a couple of hours but still no joy.

I have checked the microsoft website, and says could have corrupt temp file, and to delete by doing (Run > ?temp? > delete) and to try again, which did not help and only made my PC behave erratically and had to run a restore.

Does anyone ahve any suggestions as to what could be the cause/solution?
Thanks , Chris

I agree with Sinbads regarding Cleanup,this app can be set to how aggressive you want it to be,but beaware if using the aggressive option....use caution and create a restore point.Default settings of this app are pretty reliable though.

Though i find ccleaner safer to use.

Thanks for the advice in this forum, I have downloaded and successfully removed nearly 1 gig of junk from my pc that I was trying to remove using Windows Disk Clean up. I will be using Ccleaner in future.....
