Windowsupdate.log

Recommended Posts

Hello,

First of all I want to say THANK YOU all the developers of the great software, CCleaner. I use it once a day, it's really helpful.

 

Well, there is one file with name "WindowsUpdate.log" (It's located on the Windows' folder - C:\Windows\WindowsUpdate.log for example). This file contains a log of the WindowsUpdate function. When it weights alot, the CPU starts to work hardly and sometimes can freeze the computer for some seconds. The fixing of the problem is just to clean the contains of the file, or - to delete it.

I suggest to add a function for CCleaner - to clean this file. It's really can helpful for lots of peoples.

 

Thanks,

Yonatan

CCleaner does attempt to clean this file but it's locked by windows and therfore cannot be deleted without terminating the proccess that is locking it. I run CCleaner at shutdown after closing all running programs and terminating all none critical Proccesses and it gets deleted.

 

Edit: just found an easier method.

control panel -> administrative tools -> services -> automatic updates -> double click or right click & choose properties - > stop -> ok

run CCleaner

restart automatic updates

control panel -> administrative tools -> services -> automatic updates -> double click or right click & choose properties - > start -> ok

CCleaner's behaviour towards locked files is something that shoud be changed by Mr G. There are many files that CCleaner tries to delete aswell as windowsupdate.log that cannot be deleted as they are locked e.g. TVDebug.log. I feel whenever CCleaner comes across a file it can't delete they should be treated the same as the Index.dat files and marked for deletion on next reboot. As the above method is quite longwinded and iratating. :)
