$ /usr/share/computerjanitor/computer-janitor-gtk
ERROR:computerjanitor:Cannot contact Computer Janitor dbus service; try
Traceback (most recent call last):

Sucks up nearly 100% of the cpu, and overall (IMO) is a dangerous piece
of junk. Sorry, but it's one of the first things that I install on a new

results (Ubuntu 10.10 32 bit and 64bit).

This works well though:

$ sudo apt-get purge computer-janitor*
