Had a good try with that link but no luck.

I dont get the same options on disk clean up and absolutely no way could I get that Elevated Command Prompt up and running. Many thanks for your help RDave13, I think I will leave it for now, its only on my Laptop and that can wait.

Many Thanks,

Russell

I formatted my laptops SSD and installed a completely new install, everything works just fine now.

Many thanks for the help.

Thanks a lot,

Russell

Sorry it didn't work. I'd have found the folder and just deleted it if the correct way didn't work. I think a clean install is better than upgrading .
