Default Installation / Update Cleanup


I recently installed XP Pro , SP1, and all MS suggested
updates and enhancements.
I now have about 200 Mb of various unistall files, such
as $NtServicePackUnistall$ and $NtUnistallkB282010$.
Is it safe to delete these files? My machine is
operating ok and I would like to recover the disk space.
Also, are there other files that may be safely deleted,
such as log files?
Thanks,
RoyM

Default Installation / Update Cleanup


If you wish to safely remove the "uninstall files" for the
Hotfixes (i.e. $NtUninstallQ******$ files shown in Windows Explorer)
and cleanup your Add/Remove Programs list, visit MS-MVP Doug Knox's
excellent website for instructions.

Note: Doug's program only removes the uninstall files and Hotfix entries
in the Add/Remove Programs listing. It does not remove the
actual updates.

Remove Hotfix Backup files and the Add/Remove Programs Registry entries
