OP was asking about MSE updates, not Windows Updates. (I misread it too the first time)

Hi! This is my first reply on SF. I have been watching a lot!
When ever I uninstall programs with REVO; I like to follow up with Search Everything.
It will find any left over files after uninstalling a program that REVO misses!

AV programs have their own very specific uninsatallers that you should use. Here is the list: AV Uninstallers

Yep Rich beat us all to you

I was trying to see if you had a storage question hidden in the original and prior replies
Seems space is an issue of some type,
Could you elaborate as to why space is a concern and hopefully you are using another antivirus program in MSE's place
And which one and why ?

Granted MSE needs Malwarebytes pro/ premium for added protection,
Amazon.com: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Lifetime
But on the other hand so do the majority of other paid for and free antivirus programs,
This is about all everyone can agree on :)
Cheers.

Not a real concern. I just don't like any space being wasted; like the lazyass son in-law in the basement.

"...and hopefully you are using another antivirus program in MSE's place

I have read multiple articles on how MSE has been slacking off and easing out of the AV realm. I am currently trying out Bitdefender and Panda Free. Both have received rave reviews and seem to be easy on resources.

"Granted MSE needs Malwarebytes pro/ premium for added protection,"
I also am a long time fan of Malwarebytes keeping any AV company.

Thanks for the added info :)
I wouldn't believe everything or just about anything you read about mse from a third party
Most are pushing some thing else mse and mbam pro has been on board for me a for several years without issues or corruption,

The worst thing about third party a-v's is their ability to block windows updates and internet explorer's new security features,
Turning ie into a brick,
MSE is probably the only security suite that no special uninstaller is needed
