    Great program and it actually works! Though I bombed my Win 10 in to a BSOD and a reboot when I tried to delete files in the Windows.old folder. A folder I tried to remove and was unsuccessful using the Windows file cleaner. It just won’t go! Any ideas?

  2. Pls see if you can boot in Safe Mode and do a system restore. Else note down the BSOD error code and then search for it on this site.
