Windows 7 Home Basic
where are the $Uninstall files in Win7?

in XP, we have those $uninstall files after Windows Update each time.
i can delete them to free space, then i go to add/remove to remove the update, it will say something that the uninstall file is no longer exist so i can remove the relevant entry from Add/Remove completely.

how to do that in Win7?

There is nothing to be done in Windows 7 as it does not use the same system as Windows XP.
Updates for Windows 7 do not actually have installers or uninstallers. The servicing stack handles that.
