    I was of the understanding it compresses non essential system files but I could be mistaken.

    Once compressed via the 'Extended Cleanup' method (in prep for making a custom install ISO), is there an easy way to decompress them to improve system speed again?

    Hello PhoenixCodes, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    cleanmgr.exe long freeze solved


    Hi,
    From long-long time ago I fight against a some kind of a strange behavior of cleanmgr.exe (from W7 until W10). I tried everything to fix this issue without success.
    For no apparent reason, cleanmgr.exe start to begin to put it self at background, some time disappears and reappears, and freeze or take long time to finish.
    But the most weird thing is, all this happens if I don't touch the keyboard and the mouse. If I move de cursor over and around the Disk Cleanup's window or I click over the windows or put the cursor over the window and press some key, the program runs fine and quick.I search the web for this symptoms and found other people with the same problem without a working solution.
    Then I remember a CMD tool from Nirsoft: nircmd.exe. This tool can send keystrokes and cursor movements to the Windows desktop. So, I create a small bath script to execute cleanmgr.exe and using nircmd.exe: put the cursor over the title bar of Disk Cleanup and send some shift clicks every half second.
    This isn't a definitive solution but solve my problem with cleanmgr.exe strange behavior.
    Code:
    StartX /NOUI /REALTIME "cleanmgr.exe /sagerun:65535"
    :LOOP
    <nul (set /p x=.)
    nircmd.exe win activate title "Disk Cleanup"
    nircmd.exe setcursorwin 175 10
    nircmd.exe sendkeypress shift
    Sleep -m 500
    tasklist /FI "IMAGENAME eq cleanmgr.exe" | find /I "cleanmgr.exe" >nul 2>&1
    if %ERRORLEVEL% EQU 0 (goto :LOOP)
    echo DONE
    StartX (Naughter Software) and Sleep are external CMD tools.
