I am new to BC and I'm out of my depth,but as I am trying to follow the introductory recommendations the 'cleanmgr' is taking forever to remove temporary files and recycle bin. I rebooted and started again but same result. Between times I ran ad aware and that came to a grinding halt at C:\WINNT\system32\net dtect.dll . I sent an error report but got same result next day (perhaps I wasn't patient enough). I came to BC as it uses language I can follow, so If anyone is kind enough to help, please bear that in mind! Thanks.

Welcome to BC
Sorry for the slow response. I didn't have Win2K long enough to try this option, so I'm just guessing here. What's the capacity of the hard drive? Any chance of starting it when you go to bed and let it run all night? I'm guessing if you've never have done any type of disk clean up before, the first time might take awhile.
Might I also suggest you visit our Freeware Replacements For Common Commercial Apps thread. There are many 3rd party applications that can help you along
