Disk Cleanup hangs

When I run the disk cleanup utility, it gets to the
message " Scanning: Compress Old Files" and then hangs
there. I have tried safe mode, and the same thing
happens. Any suggestions?

1. Disk Cleanup Hung

When i try to run disk cleanup, it displays three progress
bars and the message "compressing files".  It does this
indefinitely without ever finishing (ie it hangs).  I try
to exit the program by hitting cancel and the progress
window disappears, but in task manager it still says
cleanmgr.exe is using 99% of CPU so it must be getting
really stuck.  i have tried getting rid of all my temp
files and caches, etc.  also have tried disabling screen
savers and antivirus.  any suggestions on what would cause
this and what i can do to fix this?
