I understand that you were performing a disk cleaning task on your computer and now your computer is not booting to the desktop.
Have you tried any troubleshooting steps on your own?
What is the exact error message you are getting on the computer? Can you share a screenshot?
May I know the procedure you followed to perform disk cleaning?
Touchsmart computer is available as All-in-one computer and notebook, so may I know the model of your computer?
