Windows 7: Problems when trying to open the Disk Cleanup.

Problems when trying to open the Disk Cleanup.

I don't know if it's a file error, or what. But every time I click on the Disk Cleaner, my mouse says something's loading but nothing ever comes up. I've tried running the Disk Cleanup location (C:\Windows\System32\cleanmgr.exe) and other ways to try and open it. Yet, it's the same thing every time I click, nothing comes up. Is there a solution to this? Do I have to re-download the file?

Run sfc /scannow from a command prompt.

It it finds any errors, run it again until it no longer finds errors.

How long has this been going on?

Disk Cleanup not removing system update files/SFC can't fix problems
Disk Cleanup claims it can remove about 9.5 GB of old system update files, but upon running it, nothing happens (and I don't free up any space). This may or may not be related, but I ran SFC and it found problems it couldn't fix. I've attached the logs.
