Windows update cleanup

Recommended Posts

In the December 2009 Newsletter there was reference to Optimize 3 removing old Windows updates.

Does this refer to files in the Download Folder accessed by Start>Run>%windir%\Software Distribution?

If so it does not appear to be working. Can you offer any assistance?

It is not the updates themselves that are being removed. It is the uninstallers for old updates that if removed, would break newer updates that are dependent on the older update being installed.

 

The uninstallers are located at:

 

•%windir%\$xpsp1hfm$\

•%windir%\$NtUninstallQ...$\

•%windir%\$NtUninstallKB...\
