    I'm trying to do a disk cleanup and the little red bars haven't moved in an hour. Whats going on here? I CTL+ALT+DEL, and it says its running. I've never done this before so I was wondering if this is normal.

    disk cleanup should only take about 2-5 mins, depending on your computer.

    if it's removing compressed system files it can take a while especially with XP

    Thanks everyone for your help. I got it. I cleared about 18gb. After cleaning house on my PC (Piece of Crap), I now have about 30gb. I'm just wondering how just factory installed apps on my computer are taking up 120gb? I have nothing left on my computer but these and I only have 30gb on a 150gb hard drive. I can't figure it out.
