Disk Cleanup in WinXP

  ColinPaul 17:40 16 Sep 03

Disk Cleanup in WinXP starts okay (from the 'Accessories' menu) but only gets as far as three green blocks before freezing. Please can someone tell me what is wrong and how I can fix it?

Thank you.

Could it be you've got too much stuff to clean up? Try using Tools > Internet options in IE to do some of the cleaning. Then empty the Recycle bin manually. See if the cleanup program works after another couple of days.

I was just about to add that mine pauses for ages on 3 blocks too, because I have lots of "old" files the machine is scanning. Wish I knew how to stop this part of the process from happening.
