    CLEANUP MGR (WIN XP HOME)

    A friend tries to run WINDOWS CLEANUP and the progress bar comes up and then just "hangs". He never gets past the progress bar. Looking for suggestions. Thanks

    This is just a guess, but the "Compress old files" setting is probably at fault. See this post from a few months ago by WyllyWylly:

    On my system (WIN XP Home) I deleted the "Compress old files" Registry key, and Disk Cleanup takes a second or two to complete. Before I deleted the key, Disk Cleanup got "hung up" with "Compress old files" indicated on the progress bar. See post cited above for other suggestions.
