Computer went from 62GB to 68GB after Windows Update?

I booted windows and saw there was a silverlight update. I let if do it and saw that 6GB were mysterious freeded when i saw my HDD space. Should I be worried?

True but I mean was there a reason why it did that? For now I guess it just deleted some windows update files. 6GB worth of windows update files. geez.

I doubt Windows Update had anything to do with it. 6GB is more than all the updates combined would occupy. There has to be another reason.

Did you do anuything else? Disk cleanup, run CCleaner, etc?
