Thanks John,

there is a lot going on about Windows 10 at the moment, so I don't think any one has seen this thread.

I might start one about deleting outdated ( ???) update history as this one is quiet dated.

Have a nice day or evening, what ever you are into at the moment

Resetting Windows Update will do that for you.

Your Windows disc cleanup looks different to mine. I have W7 HP SP1 & have the lastest disc cleanup update installed. There is no "more options" or any entry as regards to "old updates". Is there anything I can do to get what you have? Is is because of a different version of W7?

Thanks for your time. I have included a screen grab of my DC interface

Hello Grimmlord Blakk, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Just to verify, did you restart the computer after installing the update from step 1?

Hi,
Actually you would need to click on Cleanup System files button on the bottom left of that screen shot
Then you will see More options after it refreshes the page

I'm not all that sure I would actually use windows update cleanup it has bugs and I'm not sure it's worth using anymore ?

Hi guys, thanks for the welcome and your help For some reason (I can't explain) it's suddenly decided to be like the original posters layout! Oh well, sorry to have wasted your time. One thing though. When I perform a disc clean and look at my harddrive size after it looks as though its used almost all of my disc space! When I restart its ok. Any reason why it does this? Thanks again

Hi,
Gremlin's ?
You might need to ask a new question and post a screen shot of disk management
