Delete Windows update files

 

Warning If you delete the folder for each update, the corresponding Windows update cannot be uninstalled. Consider the effect that this will have on the computer before you delete the Windows update files.

 

To delete Windows update files, follow these steps:

  1. Delete only those %Windir%/$NtUninstallKB number$ folders that were created more than a month ago as backup files for Windows updates. Do not delete those that were created within the last 30 days.
  2. To delete the download cache for Windows updates, delete all the folders in the %Windir%\SoftwareDistribution\download folder that were created more than 10 days ago.
  3. Delete the following log files in the %Windir% folder:
    • kb*.log
    • setup*.log
    • setup*.old
    • setuplog.txt
    • winnt32.log
    • set*.tmp

it is perfectly safe to remove all files in that folder .......as microsoft says

It seems inconsistent that you give a link specific to Windows XP in support of an entry that warns :-

Warning=only Vista, Win 7, Win 2008

Software Distribution folder has been discussed a lot, but generally not considered OK to remove because a lot of people don't understand the effects.

Thanks for the update, I just wanna point out that this will break .net4 uninstall

 

[Microsoft.NET Cache*]
LangSecRef=3025
Detect=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\.NETFramework
Default=False
FileKey1=%WinDir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\SetupCache|*.*|RECURSE
FileKey2=%WinDir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\SetupCache|*.*|RECURSE

 

You can fix uninstall by deleting the uninstall entries for setup.exe in SetupCache and unhide the uninstall entries of the MSI's

 

FileKey3=%WinDir%\Microsoft.NET\NETFXRepair*
RegKey1=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile
RegKey2=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Extended
; Client x64
RegKey3=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{F5B09CFD-F0B2-36AF-8DF4-1DF6B63FC7B4}\SystemComponent
; Client x86
RegKey4=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{3C3901C5-3455-3E0A-A214-0B093A5070A6}\SystemComponent
; Extended x64
RegKey5=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{8E34682C-8118-31F1-BC4C-98CD9675E1C2}\SystemComponent
; Extended x86
RegKey6=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{0A0CADCF-78DA-33C4-A350-CD51849B9702}\SystemComponent

 

 

BTW I make a slim/updated .net4 installer with the setup stuff removed if anyone does not like the setup junk

 

Edit: added NETFXRepair* (this is only used by setup.exe) and fixed RegKey's

Edited by ricktendo64
: Members will have to find another way to access Ricktendo's .net installer

I've been using this for awhile with no ill effects, however it needs testing by other people:

 

[Microsoft Security Essentials (Old Definitions)]*

 

Edit:

Warning: I've found out using these with BleachBit will purge even new definitions if MSE is turned off.

 

While this worked good with the previous version of MSE, it causes MSE v4 to re-download new definitions even though they already exist, so I've removed the cleaning routine. If anyone is using it in winapp2.ini I'd recommend removing it from it.

That's what causes that? This has been driving me insane! Also is unrelated to Internet Explorer O_o..

Doesn't reset the volume levels when cleared for me. Wonder if it depends on the Audio driver?

I have WIn7 Pro and a realtek audio driver.

and a soundmax integrated driver on a laptop.

Thank you. Darned if it wasn't simple. I was looking in the windows folder in the reg. :rolleyes:

 

Didn't rebuild though. I made two quick ones and nothing was remembered from the program. I make a lot of movies from baseball games though so who knows. It may eventually start another list after a reboot. I haven't rebooted yet.
