    There are several things that you can remove, but they are all temporary
    solutions. You soon find yourself in the same situation. the
    only real solution to this problem is the purchase of a larger or second hard
    drive. Luckily they are cheap these days.

    Folders that have uninstall as part of the name (for example $NtUninstallKB282010$ who reside in C:\windows (hidden files) are window Hot difficulty updating folders/files) can be removed safely (providing ever, you wish to uninstall the updates). I recommend you leave these records for a period of at least one month to make sure that the update works correctly.

    These updates can be removed individually or together. To learn more about the update/s go on:

    NB: XXXXXX = the actual number, not to mention the "Q" or "Ko."

    Once you have removed the uninstall folders/files, then go to control panel, add/remove programs. Select the title of the corresponding Windows fix on the folder/file of the patch you just deleted, and select Delete. You will get a Windows error. This is because you deleted the uninstall folder/files. Simply choose OK and the entry will be removed from the Add/Remove Programs list.
