Every time I try to run Disc Cleanup in XP it freezes within seconds. When I press Control/Alt/delete it shows cleanmgr.exe as taking up 99 of the CPU. I have to get rid of this otherwise all programmes run slowly.
Can anybody help

Thanks roman

click here and scroll down to:


48. Clean Out Index.dat (Change Username) Disk Cleanup - Compress Old Files Freezes

It's usually the Compress Old Files that causes the freeze up.


At the top of the page read the instructions before downloading the file.

I had been experiencing the same trouble as roman,
and he has past your information on to me, and yes it has worked for me too and my computer is running perfectly, so I owe you a big thankyou !
