    Right click the Desktop IE icon and choose "Properties." Click the "Delete Files" button. When it finishes, click the "Delete cookies" button. The after that completes, click the "Clear History" button. Now try running cleanmgr again and report back what happens. Give full details of any error message received.

    Dear Friend:
    Thank you for your reply. I made all that you indicate me with Internet Explorer properties and cleanmgr.exe continues without working. I expect your kindly comments asap.

    Try going to Start > Run and typing cleanmgr.exe /d c: and press enter or click OK. That could yield some information. Note any error message received and report all details. Take care to include the spaces in the command properly. Space before and after /d

    Try booting to Safe Mode and running the command. You may have some conflict with another program or possibly a virus or spyware that is causing this problem. Safe Mode may help eliminate those possibilities.

    If unsure how to boot to Safe Mode, click the link below in my signature.

    Download the attached file to your Desktop. Right click it and select "Rename" and type dcof.reg in the name field and press enter. Then double click it and when asked, allow the import to the Registry. If your AV protests when you run this file, do not worry. It's a safe file and contains no virus. Disable the AV if necessary.

    When the import is finished, reboot and try running the Disk Cleanup program again.

    ps. Per your question via e-mail, the Desktop IE Icon refers to the Internet Explorer icon. Also, don't worry about your English, it's fine.

    Dear Friend Zephyr:
    Good morning. With reference with the file that you kindly sent me. When I rename (in spanish would be "Reemplazar"?). A window mentioned that the file dcof.reg has not been found; and I do not know what can I do. Could you explain me where is my mistake? Thank you

    Hi again! I'm sorry that you're having such a bad time. Let me show you how it can be done. The following pictures refer to my original post with the attachment in it. When you complete the process outlined below, then you should find the file named dcof.reg on your Desktop. When you double click on it, you will be asked if you want to import it into the Registry. Answer Yes.

    What a coincidence Rog, that's the same .reg file I attached. :D

    The problem is one of language interpretation rather than source of material. I think we'll finally get there and we'll all be stronger for the effort. ;)
