I ran my disk cleanup and there is button that says shows files. A separate window opens and it shows the files. The window is called Occache. Can I select all and then delete all of them? When I click on one of them and hit delete, I get a message saying "file will be removed permanently, are you sure?"
Some of these files, the status says damaged, other's say unknown and other's say Installed. Some of these files are Java Runtime, Installation support, Junipersetup. Would damage anything if I delete these?
These are the ones that haven't been removed after running disk cleanup several time. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

You could set a restore point for your computer before you do the disk cleanup. That way if you did happen to need something that went away you can do a restore and get it back.. :thumbsup:

Thank you Wildabeast, but I don't have enough disk space to do a restore point. My daughter said I might have to dump the hard drive and start over. I have all of the restore disks. She suspects there is a viurs and that is not being detected. So, how do I dump my hard drive?
