skywalker, Go to the link below and under scroll down to 48 and you'll see the "Disk Cleanup - Compress Old Files Freezes" Fix in the right column, download it and run it which should correct your problem.
"To use the Regedits: Save the REG File to your hard disk. Double click it and answer yes to the import prompt. REG files can be viewed in Notepad by right clicking on the file and selecting Edit".
I need help. I can't figure out why my computer (Windows X) can't clean up its C drive. I have used System tools and tried to go via Windows explorer and nothing works. It's taking hours to go throught Old Compressed files. Did several checks and I know I don't have a virus. So, what can it be?? Please help me. Thanks
