  1. Removing leftover windows update file?


    Yesterday i clean windows update file from system setting > storage > Free up space. Because this already in the middle of the night and the progress take too long also i think its stuck in "purging: windows update cleanup" status so i turn off my pc and continue tomorrow. And today i try to run free up space again to continue, but those windows update file are gone. At the first i think the progress already done when i turn off my pc but its doesnt because i check my hard drive space its only increasing 1gb. And those windows update file size is around 4gb so there is 3gb leftover file in my computer. But i cant find it. How do i remove this ?

    :)

    ...

    you get the idea. ( too lazy to put it in a for loop and test it.

    or just open regedit and remove all the fileX from that key.

    Removing leftover windows update file?

    AVG leftovers


    Hello,
    Almost two months since I uninstalled this AVG antivirus using their special removal tool, then searched for leftover files and deleted them manually, did the same in the registry.
    Recently while using CCleaner, noticed there is still an AVG leftover in the installed programs list, "Visual Studio 2012 x86 Redistributables".
    Is "Microsoft Visual C++" the same, then I can remove this AVG leftover ?
    Attached screenshot.
    Answers will be appreciated
    Thanks
