Why Compressing File Takes so long?

Question

Recently, when I try to run the disk cleanup utility, it takes FOREVER. It stays in the dialog box that reads "compressing files." It did not used to take so long to run and I haven't added any new software (in fact, I've REMOVED quite a few). How can this be repaired?

Well It takes sometimes, so you can try to cloe any other apllications you have running and let it run by it self or if the disk cleanup utility is being over used you could try to rplace it with a nw one.
