    I wish to remove the manually archived alerts that action center has previously stored. I do not want to change any setting of the action center itself.

    How is this done?

    I can answer the question myself.

    I had to also select 'system files' when I used the disk cleanup facility.

    Run Box= Windows + R keys, type cleanmgr /sageset:50
    Select the options you desire, I choose them all. Click OK and close out the window.
    Repeat= Windows + R keys, type cleanmgr /sagerun:50 .

    A bit more potent.

    You can even set up a small batch file on your desktop to do this automatically. I set sageset to 99 using Run, cleanmgr /sageset:99.
    The system remembers this setting. This allows me to also choose all options in Clean Manager.
    I then use notepad to save the following batch file to my desktop. I name it CleanUp.bat
    This allows me to clean up many temp files.

    del /q /s "C:\Users\User Name\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Recent Items\*.*"

    cleanmgr /sagerun:99

    I have found recently that CCleaner, with the proper options set, will clean these items with out using my batch file so I have gotten away from using it as much.
