Where are the update files?

    Microsoft updates in XP created files to permit restores if one wanted
    to reverse the update. These files could be periodically deleted.

    Where are the similar files in W7?

    Updates are downloaded to:
    C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution

    But there is no similarity with XP so you may give yourself problems
    if you try deleting anything.
