Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

How does one go about deleting old update files..  I know they exist but I cannot seem to find them.

If you are referring to old Windows Update files, you delete them like this...


Run the disk cleanup utility.


When the window opens, click on the cleanup system files box on the lower left side of the window.


The disk cleanup utility will run again, and when you get to the window, you can check the files you want to delete.


Windows update files should be listed as an option.


Check the box to delete the files.


It will take quite some time for the files to be deleted...depending on the GB size, it could take a couple of hours.
