Windows 7: Language Pack Uninstall/Install & Disk Space

Language Pack Uninstall/Install & Disk Space

I am trying to free space in my HD and I when through the uninstall process of all the additional languages I had initially installed (lpksetup) and after clicking on all the languages I wanted to uninstall the system estiamted that I would recover about 8GB. The uninstall went through fine bu I did NOT recover any space, actually the disk utilization went up by about 3GB after windows removed all the additional languages. Then I decided to re-install all the additional langugae just to see if the free space in the HD would increase by 3GB. Well... the free space went down one more time, now by about 6GB. So my HD has additional 9GB of data on it. I have no idea what to do or what folderm, temp file to delete.

BTW I already tried:
Disk Clean Up
Delete all the temp files in all users in AppData\Temp
I turned off hibernation before I started all this process
I ran windows washer and delete all the temp, cookies, interenet, etc files
My laptop has always been running an AV, Spyware so this is not a Virus or Spyware. I already scanned also with Malware Bytes.

Any temp folder I should take a look to delete any additional file(s) that are temp or not needed?

Help is appreciated
