That did the trick for me.
To be complete, the following stops the windows update service for the current session but does not alter the service’s startup setting (meaning it starts normally on the next powerup):
Go to an elevated command prompt (the terminal window) and click the "start icon" in lower left, type "command", right click on command prompt in the list, run as administrator, then type: net stop “windows update”
Then use Windows Explorer to select and delete all the files.
