Windows 7: Disk cleanup failure

Disk cleanup failure

I am trying to free some space on my 64GB SSD, but the Disk Cleanup utility is unable to get rid of 640MB of Service Pack backup files and 3,19GB of Windows Update superseded packages, it runs but closes without throwing any error. SFC scan shows no problems, google is not very helpful, maybe someone could help me with this. OS is Windows 7 x64.

In order to do that, Windows must be up to date. Can you confirm that is the case?

Thank you for your time.
The only update showing currently in Windows update is an optional one, the driver for my graphics card, so I think Windows is up-to-date. KB2852386 is already installed, I followed the guide you posted but with the same outcome.

Problem solved, the new SURT v31 did the trick.
