    Hi

    i updated the last august w7 sp1 64bit hotfixes and now when i run clean disk , in the list windows updates is gone

    it's weird because in the past , i had always the option to enable or disable and i had always 2mb of windows updates

    is it normal ?
    do you have in the list windows updates?

    the option is gone after the august update , and reboot , and i run clean disk to get rid of updates(200mb i don't remember exactly)

    thanks

    First the Windows Update Cleanup option only shows in Disk Cleanup if you "run as administrator" (but you knew that). Also it will not display if there are no saved updates to remove. I've noticed that sometimes after installing updates there's no cleanup option so I guess removable backups are not always created (?)

    well everytime kept 2mb under windows update , and remember it removed the windows updates during the shutdow/reboot
    @Victek may i ask you ? do you have w7 august hotfixes updated?

    Yes I have the August updates installed and there's no option to remove backups in Disk Cleanup. I've run Disk Cleanup a few times recently though and I can't be certain that the option to remove backups was never displayed for the August updates. Perhaps someone else can chime in on this?
