How large is your hard drive? Do you have a lot of software installed?

Disk Cleanup can take a while, depending on how much stuff it has to analyze on the hard drive. Another issue is probably that you have less than 3% free space. I know Disk Defrag won't run when free space falls below a 5-10% threshold.

If possible, try uninstalling or deleting unnecessary stuff and try the Disk Cleanup again.
