Disk Cleanup - clean up system files

Is there a way to run Disk Cleanup in Windows 7 that makes the "clean up system files" option available immediately? It's annoying to have to always run it twice.

You will have to go to the Disk Cleanup shortcut, then right mouse click the shortcut, then select properties, then advanced and then check the Run as administrator box and select OK. You will have to use the shortcut to keep this feature enabled each time you run Disk Cleanup.
