When I attempt to run Disk Cleanup, the utility starts up but immediately stalls. Is there a way to "re-install" this tool on my Win2000 work station?

Disk Defrag and Scan Disc utilities work fine

Any advice is appreciated :thumbsup:

What actions have you checked in disk cleanup?

Start with just the temp files and see if it completes that.

cake: I have had the same/similar issue with disk cleanup and Windows 2000 computers.

Please see the following: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/886219/en-us

If you are having the same issue as described in this link, please read the warning about making changes to the registry.....

Warning If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.

Edit: Typo.
