Disk Cleanup Fail

Hi guys,

This seems to be a common problem but the solutions are pretty lame and don't do anything.

When I run disk cleanup (system files) I get 6.60GB under System queued windows error reporting. Of course disk cleanup just hangs (at least it was still hanging after an hour and a half).

I have no idea if there really are 6.6 gigs of error files or it's misreporting. I deleted everything in Software Distrubution and also Logs to no avail. I ran sfc / scannow and got an 80 meg log file that I don't know what to do with.

Can't i just delete this stuff manually ?

Thanks.

Well, I don't know what happened but I just tried it again and after ten seconds disk cleanup finished and it seems fine. I didn't really do anything since I wrote the original post just a few minutes ago. It's weird.

* I didn't mark this post solved because I can't post any kind of solution.
