Removing old update backup files from Windows XP and Windows 7

Windows XP Update Remover

Before I release a new Windows XP standard operating system image, I use a utility called “Windows XP Update Remover”.  I do this to reduce the number of “$NTuninstall” directories and to save some disk space.

Sure, 400MB isn’t that much in the world of 1000 gigabyte drives, but if it reduces the GHOST image size but that much, it should make a desktop deployment just that little bit faster.

With Windows 7, I’d just use the built-in Disk Cleanup Utility.

Cleanmgr
