Hi,
any easy way for girder to excecute the "empty thrash" command in win XP?

http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=315246 documents the CleanMgr command.

It could be executed using Girder's OS | Execute command.

thanks for the reply!

I can now empty trash in girder via Cleanmgr.exe!

A problem, though, is that it takes some time before it is finished.
I was looking for a quicker solution to put in a hotkey (quicker than minimizing windows, rightclicking trash, choosing empty and confirming delete - that is a few of seconds).

cleanmgr seems to waste some time calculating how much diskspace it can possibly free before actually emptying the trash - can that step be removed somehow? Can't seem to find a switch for that...
