CLEAN FILES stuck at 0% for hours

Recently discovered SupportAssist - all the tests run fine except for one - Clean Files...  If just sits in the following state for hours until I get tired and cancel the whole app...  Any ideas on what may be causing it to stick on this?  Thanks!

I've been having the same problem and haven't found a fix yet.  Reinstalled SupportAssist, removed the temp files.  Nada.

Same problem. Haven't been able to run assist fully in a while because of it even though I need to. Please fix!

Resolved!
This happened to me few times, finally I did contact support, after trying the updates one last time.
This time the entire set of updates worked fine and without much wait.
I guess it must be the BIOS update I ran ( upon prompt), when I ran the Support Assist that one last time

Nothing new was done on the support call, just ran a system check to ensure all hardware was fine and then reboot, and run Support assist again... and bingo! all was smooth!

I faced similar problem, file cleaning stucked at 0% for more than 2 hours, closed Dell support Assist.Look for drivers update & updated recommended. Surprisingly it worked smooth next day.

Re: CLEAN FILES stuck at 0% for hours

I'm thinking of running SupportAssist in chunks.

I'm manually running the "Get Drivers & Downloads" and "Scan Hardware" with the SupportAssist, and they both work.

Manually running "Clean Files" will stay stuck at 0%.

Manually running "Tune Performance" will also stay stuck at 0%.

Manually running "Optimize Network" will also stay stuck at 0%.

I don't have "Remove Viruses & Malware" feature, so I didn't do any of that.

It really has to do with the process of "Preparing..." stuffs that the SupportAssist is getting stuck at. And I don't know why.

I don't even know if it's possible to run SupportAssist as administrator on Windows 10 at this point.
