RE: Disk Cleanup Hangs...
Thanks for your fast response. I ran chkdsk with everything checked. It ran
after reboot and checked the drive for a long time. It ended up saying the
drive is clean. Then went back into windows and ran disk cleanup again with
same problem. I have looked everywhere on the net and can't seem to find
anyone else who has had this problem (in Vista or XP). Everything else on my
system seems to be running just fine. Very strange...
