You will use "cleanup" options then scrowl down and click cleanup leftover install files, and setuplog files. you can also use
"More Options "an remove all but the latest RESTORE files. Not all shown but : surely you get the idea.

Use free program CCleaner(Crap Cleaner) to get rid of crap, hence the name.Do not use the registry cleaner aspect of the program unless you know what you are doing.
Also in options>advanced there is a box ticked to "Only delete files in windows temp folder older than 48hrs" you can uncheck that if you want to get rid of everything now.
CCleaner can also be used to enable/disable startup programs and uninstall programs.
During install it will ask if you want to install toolbar and other crap, just uncheck boxes.

If windows has a tight lock on the folder and will not allow you to delee them, one by one, name them Windows.old, then do a disk cleanup and tell it to delete windows upgraded files.

This is a little trick I learned back in Vista when some folders/files were in use I just could not get rid of.

Hi, In my opinion UAC that comes in Windows 7 is totally useless and it really just slows your computing down. I just have to do more clicks to get things done in my opinion. And I don't know how it protects noobs. from viruses, malwares in anyway ? For eg. I am noob, I see flashy mouse...
