I am having trouble getting my disk cleanup manager to run to completion. It will open and begin but I have left it on over night before and it did not progress. The status bar on the bottom gets to nearly 10% but that is it. The program does not freeze it just doesn't do anything. Can you help me someone?

Are you familiar with the registry?

You may have a corrupt setting.

What do you mean with familiar? Yes, I do know that there is one and that it can have problems from time to time. I had some other problems a while back and I had to do a registry edit. How can I tell if the problem is in the registry and how do I fix it.

I always have a little voice in the back of my head that says "Don't tell them to edit the registry"

What would you prefer to do in my case? Is there a better way to solve this problem?

nothing....if it worked, you obviously are competent enough to edit the registry.

Rock on
