Disc cleanup not cleaning up

When I use disc cleaner I see I can free up 28 files saving 3.41 MB but after ticking the boxes to send to rubbish bin ,I see that "no files were deleted " and no space created.The files referred to are:Temp 148kb,Backup 1,22mb,Log2.05mb and junk 478kb.Why would this be?

Try using CCleaner It is free and spyware/adware free. Excellant program.

See if it will get rid of the temp files etc. Post back with the results from this one.
