I, for one, do not understand exactly what your question is. Perhaps one of the other members will be able to understand it. I mean no disrespect, but if you would break up your post into sentences with the correct punctuation marks, it would be easier to understand.

Windows Disk Cleanup- Size of files is shown. most temp files can be removed. I would leave the Error logs alone.
Disk Cleanup - Open and Use

This will rid you of SP1 temp files if not already shown above.
Windows 7 SP1 Disk Cleanup Tool

I do not recommend third party cleaners.
You might remove something you need and the result can be reinstalling Windows.

MSE updates flagged in Win 7 updates but not XP Mode updates
I find it odd that when I do a Windows Update in Windows 7, the Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) updates are also found. But if I do a Windows Update in XP Mode, the MSE updates are not found. I don't suppose this is controllable? I'd like the Windows Update to find MSE updates.
