Default a friend's computer keeps hanging on disk cleanup...

it will literally sit there forever when analyzing his disk, he can open other windows and open other apps, but he left it there all night last night just to see what would happen and it was still stuck at that point, even though he could still run other programs...

any thoughts...?

was he cleaning up old compress files? cuz those can take a loooooooooong time to clean especially if they are in very large amounts. but u say the disk cleanup stayed there while he slept, wow... i dont know.
