Elevated Program Shortcut without UAC Prompt - Create

I just used this to create a shortcut for the desktop and it still works very well, it opens and closes all on its own, the only thing that needs done is to confirm the files you want cleaned.

Is it normal to disk cleanup extended no to show up the size of the items to be deleted?

Windows 7 Home x64

I'm terribly sorry to revive this old thread, but I have a question.
Been at this for hours now, and this seems like the only solution that might work.

When I type the command in cmd run as admin.. I get a message saying "Access denied".
Why might this be?

Also, no "Windows Update Cleaner" option to tick in Cleanmgr

Hello hoofbite, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It sounds like you didn't run the command in an elevated command prompt.
