Disk cleanup freeze...another option?

I have looked for an answer for a problem.....the freezing of disk cleanup
when it comes to compressing old files.
The only options I've found is a workaround from MSN....and a program which
deletes the compressing of old files from your PC found at Kelly's Corner (or
something like that).
I would like to compress my old files if need be.
I've done the workaround and have had to reinstall the decompression option.
But....After reinstalling it....I'm back to square 1......freezes at
decompressing old files.
Is there any other ideas?
