  1. Windows Update Cleanup??


    Dear Sir/Madam:


    Each time I RUN "Disk Cleanup" and do the "clean up system file" There must be

    one big item named "Windows Update Cleanup"Such as 167 MB.


    BUT, you never can cleanup this "Windows Update Cleanup" big item! Is it right??

    Here are the answers to your question:

    • No, I haven't made any updates or changes but I think it is of Creators Update but there was no file named "Windows Update Cleanup" till some weeks or months, I just noticed after the day when I posted this thread.
    • No, I don't get any error message.
    • No, I haven't tried any troubleshooting steps.

    Hi,

    I realize the inconvenience you are experiencing with Disk Cleanup. I will certainly help you.

    As per your query, I would like to inform you that, it is safe to delete all the files with extension .tmp in the temporary files folder.

    I suggest you to try deleting the temporary file manually by the steps provided below and check if it helps:

    • Go to Windows key+ R and type
      temp
    • Select all of the files and folders within the Temp folder and delete.

    Please follow the below link to run disk cleanup:
