    C:\Windows\Panther Keeps Installing Itself


    My understanding is that this folder/directory/program is installed when: "...that folder is created by Windows Update, when you upgrade Windows 10 or get a major update."

    I have windows update virtually crippled. I am still on 1709 win 10 pro and I have not installed any KB updates in quite some time. I have run Disk Cleanup for files and then for system files and each time it nukes Panther but the next day it comes back. I am not entirely sure what "Panther" does but if it has anything to do with facilitating Windows update I want it banished for good. What do you all make of C:\Windows\Panther? Thanks.

    :)

    C windows installer folder - Delete?

    He can do symbolic link redirection and move the files in it to a different location. *Wink C:\Windows\Panther Keeps Installing Itself ;)
    Better try it out in a virtual of first. Just a suggestion.

    Like:
    First move everything in c:\windows\installer to d:\installercache
    Then delete c:\windows\installer folder
    Then type this in command mode as admin
    mklink /d c:\windows\installer d:\installercache

    Removing those installer files is a bad idea. it might prevent you from updating or uninstalling apps.

    C:\Windows\Panther Keeps Installing Itself

    Panther directory in Windows 10

    I have a fairly new computer, built last year, with Windows 10. I noticed my anti virus during a scan listing "C:\windows.old\WINDOWS\Panther\windlp.state.xml - unable to open" , among other Panther files that end with "unable to open". Can these be safely
    deleted?
