Delete all the files/folders of old install once the last series on the window updates have been installed?

I have everything, if records of installation/uninstallation and newspapers since I installed XP.

I'm sure that the last set of Windows updates work.

Is there a problem with the removal of old files/flies and connects using CCleaner?

If not all, can I at least remove those older files that the SP2 install date?

What problems can I hire after cleaned?

I guess that the answer to MS Office updates also apply.

Thank you



If your PC behaves properly, you can remove the hidden Windows hotfix backup files that start with $NTUninstallKB to the WINDOWS folder. There are two ways to do:

A. manually, but copy files on a CD/DVD first to enable their restoration has a fix must be removed thereafter. Now delete the folder \WINDOWS, but leaves the orphan entries to add / remove programs intact. Remove only the $NTUninstallKB files that relate to corrections, not those for applications such as Word, WMP, etc.. In addition, DO NOT DELETE THE folder$ $hf_mig.

B. my preference goes to run a script that also removes the corresponding entries in Add / Remove programs. Once they are deleted by the script, they cannot be restored. Download, extract and run this little script creating a system restore point first just in case something goes wrong when the update of the register.

    If you want Office 2007 updates to appear in the installed updates again, you would need to uninstall/reinstall Office 2007 and install all the updates again.

    Assuming that Office 2007 is installed & working properly and no update is offered when you run a manual check for updates now, you might want to leave enough alone (that is, do nothing) - then see if the 2 updates for Office 2007 SP3 be released next Tuesday (a) receive, (b) successfully install and (c) are listed in the installed updates later.

    PS: The possible causes of the problem are messing with registry cleaners, messing around with the Software Distribution folder, and the fact that it was a computer refurbished when you bought it.

  • All the Windows updates compressed into a single file for offline use?

    Hey guys,.

    Often, I have to reinstall from my copy of Windows Vista 32-bit. Whenever I do this I have to go through the process of updating all online again, since before the SP1. Of course, this implies several reboots as he patched the update and takes usually 3 or 4 hours. Is there a way I can pack all of the updates to date in a single file which I can run immediately after a new installation?

    It is available online, or is there a packing method updates on my computer?

    Also I'd rather not do this by creating a "ghost image".

    As for the original question, turns on you can download SP1 and SP2 from the Web site. If I did that, then stored the files on my other HARD drive, I could run them immediately after a new installation. It would take a lot of time in the update process.

    Unfortunately, there are several SP1 and SP2 updated prerequisite that must be installed before either Service Packs can be installed, so I must say no, it would not be a viable solution.

    Very generally, it is not advisable to install a Service Pack for Vista until and unless it comes to the computer through Windows Update.

    Your best bet would be to avoid all situations and/or applications that could lead to having to do a clean install of Windows.

    Whenever I create a simple trigger, this simply doesn't work. I did the tutorial animated stars on Lynda about 4 times now. I followed the tutorial to a T, initially, everything works fine. I've even saved a copy in a separate file and called it "Stars_Animations_Working", I reopen it later, preview in browser, and all of a sudden it stops just work.

It does not show that everything is on the disk. I went in each library individually in FCPX and deleted all THE files of rendering.  Reducing the total size of several concerts, but there are still almost 1 500 GB difference.

I'm a bit confused.  Someone at - it ideas?  I would like to release 1.5 TB that starting to use the new hard disk with only 650 GB and reformat the drive, but if there is some kind of hidden, important files on the original drive as FCPX needs to work properly I won't ruin the hundreds of hours I spent on editing.
