Pcfan,

Did you get any type of error message or anything after you pasted the command from step 2 into the command prompt and pressed enter, or is it some other part that is not working?

I just ran cleanmgr /? at the command prompt and got this dialog box:

USAGE
cleanmgr [/SAGESET:n | /SAGERUN:n | TUNEUP:n | /LOWDISK | /VERYLOWDISK | /SETUP]

MS documentation is available for the SAGESET and SAGERUN switches but what about the other 3 switches?

I still have 640MB of SP1 files after intalling my slipstreamed W7SP1.
I ran your command but it still shows in the regular clean up tool.
