Unable to free up space for update

HP Recommended
HP Stream

I am having issues updating windows. When I click on the update assistant it informs me that I have to free up 8GB from the C: Drive (I currently have 3GB free), however when I attempt to do this I find I am unable to. I have 5GB of temporary files but when I click on that it only gives me the option to delete about 200MB. I have 4GB of "apps and games" but when I click on that only about 500MB show up, and all of those are files that came with the computer. 

I have already deleted everything I downloaded onto the computer (launchers, games, wallpaper, ect) but can't seem to free up any more space.
