1. Open a elevated command prompt.2. In the elevated command prompt, type compcln.exe and then press Enter. (See screenshot below)3. Type Y when you see Would you like to continue? and press Enter.NOTE: Tying N will cancel running the Vista SP2 disk cleanup tool. You can also just close the command prompt window to cancel to.
4. It will take a little bit to finish. When it is finished, you will see the Windows Component Clean completed message. (See screenshot above)NOTE: You will see the Windows Component Clean was already run on this install message instead if you already ran this or installes Vista with a Vista installation disc that included SP2 with it.5. When it's done, you can close the elevated command prompt.6. Now, you just need to let all of us know how much space the tool cleared and saved for you.NOTE: I would happily tell you mine, but I have a Vista installation DVD that already includes the SP1 and SP2, so I have not backup files to clean up.That's it,247time.January 6, 2010 at 10:13 am #32893

DSTM is right…Using this tool usually in the end leads to a fresh install as it makes almost impossible to use system restore and upgrade the operating system. There are better ways to get rid of files that the normal windows cleanup has missed…This is just one stuff up covering another. Bad mistakes by Microsoft. Thank God we have Windows Seven now, much better, but you still need to clean your own files out...LOL
