Okay thanks,

Thanks - after much Googling, your answer is correct.

Sorry I passed it by.

If I understand your question.
When you do a disk cleanup or use another program just remember that some things are still in use and can't be remove while they are in use.
So for the short time a computer goes through restart or shut down and startup those items are no longer in use and can be removed in the process.

That is why sometimes a restart will take a little longer after doing a clean. It is busy finishing the final touches to the cleanup.
