After reading the Kb for a recommended update, then i choose if i do hide temporarily that one or not. This was the case for me as one failed.

Here's an Update to clean your PC's sinuses. After installing it and running Disk Clean up you'll see a new category, Windows Update Cleanup, which will remove/uninstall superseded and unneeded updates. After running Disc Cleanup a reboot is needed and on either the shut down or start screen will be an Update lock screen that says Cleaning...
I used it and it removed 410MB of junk.

Thank to Teerex for finding it. http://www.sevenforums.com/vip/285784-step-step-project-patient-meddler-cleanup-windows-7-image.html#post2556136

Update is available that enables you to delete outdated Windows updates by using a new option in the Disk Cleanup wizard in Windows 7 SP1

Before going off half-cocked (as I do) read all the prerequisites and other info.

I removed 953Mb from mine, mostly all unneeded & old updates. This is interesting as I did a completely fresh reinstall at the end of July 13.
I have the Disk Clean up icon on my desktop & run it every now & then, but to get the old updates removed you have to right click & Run as Administrator. After the clean up a restart should be done as it finalises the clean up.

Ranger a new install will grab all updates including unneeded ones. Even more if the installer is not SP1.

Just got my 21 updates at 9:26Pm ET, installed no issues. I did 6, 8, then 7. IT irks me the Microsoft still thinks I need the Bing Desktop which I've hidden several times.

Go in System32/drivers or in your device manager and you'll see that all those USB drivers are refresh ones, so that's OK!

The were refreshed from Usb Files dated 2011 to 2013-09-03, some are left from 2009.

Could be due to Remote Code Execution & Elevation of Privilege on those Usb Files

As an exemple: Microsoft Security Bulletin MS13-081
