Disk Cleanup hangs trying to do 'Windows Update Cleanup'.

    I just tried disk cleanup in Win 10 and the same problem is there also. Nothing worked to clean it either.

    Maybe similar 7 day rule, who knows, as long not left with say you do a 100- 200MB Windows Update and that does not get cleaned, then i would be more concerned. 4-9mb not a lot, even though i said can be bothersome why it should leave it still.

    Ask some of the Microsoft Professionals here, like Brink.

    It just baffles me why this is happening to many people and there is no solution at all. It happened to me as well with a stubborn 47 mb of windows update cleanup that refuses to be removed no matter what i did. And to blame CCleaner for this mess is just nonsense because it is a well known utility program that keeps your system healthy which is actually what Microsoft encourage us to do!!!!
