Hi folks,

I have tried everything here

i have carried out a scan disc, defrag, even tried in safe mode

i even have carried out a sfc /scannow

i cant get the disk cleanup to work

it starts and then just seems to stop at 3 bars(which says "calculating Scanning: Compress old files", the task manager says it is still running and all is ok

whats going on here?

Win XP ONLY! On some computers, Disk Cleanup in Windows XP hangs during the “compress old files” phase, locking up the computer. This patch, based on a manual solution solution by MS-MVP David Candy, usually fixes that problem.
