Default disk cleaner

Whats the go with disk cleaner? On some computers it will run without trouble, but on others, it freezes at the compressing files stage. I dont know whats going on, cause the program is not saying "not responding" and when I close the program, the cleanmgr.exe process runs rampart and takes up 99% of processor time? Anyone had this prob or know of a fix??

Run diskcleanup from safe mode. If it still freees, delete the following registry entry. HKEY_LOCAL_MAHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer\VolumeCaches\CompressOld Files.
It would solve the problem.

One disk to rule them all,
One disk to bind them,
One disk to hold the files
And in the darkness grind \'em.
