      Why Does My Computer Hang During Disk Cleanup?

      QUESTION:
      I have been experiencing problems w/ my disk clean up and hoping you may have an answer/solution. Why does the Disk Cleanup tool in Windows XP hang when I try to start it? I have literally 'let it go' for hours, and only see 4-5 of the blue bars on the screen. it can't complete the process.

      ANSWER:
      There are several possible causes for this. One is a fragmented disk. Be sure you run the defrag utility (Start | All Programs | Accessories | System Tools | Disk Defragmenter) before starting a cleanup. Another possible solution is to empty your Temp files folder. If Disk Cleanup is hanging during the compression process when you've selected to compress old files, you may be able to fix the problem with this registry edit:
      Open your favorite registry editor.

      Navigate to the following key:
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Explorer\VolumeCaches.

      Right click the folder labeled Compress Old Files and delete it.

      Close the registry editor.

      Caution: always back up the registry before making changes. This edit will cause old files not to be compressed.

      A less drastic way to accomplish this is to simply uncheck the Compress Old Files option.

      Windows 98 and Scanreg

      Because the registry is the source of many (perhaps most) of the problems that occur in Windows 98, it is advantageous to any 98 user to use ScanReg to fix (repair) the registry if he believes it to be broken.

      Go to Start -> Run -> command -> "scanreg /backup C:\backup.reg" (which backs up the registry) and then "scanreg /fix" to repair the registry.

      This should eliminate some of the errors that you might encounter.
