Windows 7: Updates downloaded

Updates downloaded

OK! Once again.. Greetings to people of this forum and you that is currently reading.
I have downloaded all the updates for Win 7 Ultimate 64bit.. Which I am now down to SP1. I am wondering.. Once that update is done downloading and is installed. Would that file be automatically deleted or is it still somewhere in the computer? If so it is still there.. Where is the directory of that downloaded update? *Not the directory where the update is installed*

I ask this question due to my Drive C is running low in memory
Used 34.7
Free 14.0
Capacity 48.8

To be technically accurate, your system's Hard Drive is running out of Free Space. This has nothing to do with the system's memory, NeroLigerzid.

SP1 will be found in a randomly named subfolder of Windows\SoftwareDistrbution\Download <--
This article states that SP1 requires slightly over 1 GB of Free Space for the x64 SP1 installation package obtained from Windows Update - Learn how to install Windows 7 Service Pack 1

Since you state you have "downloaded all the updates for Win 7 Ultimate 64bit", suggest you restart the system to first ensure that all of them have installed, then delete the contents of the Download subfolder to reclaim some space. Then use the above article for a guide to reclaiming more space, if so desired.

After SP1 has been installed for awhile and you find that there are no issues associated with it's installation, then please see this Tutorial to reclaim more Free Space -
