I like acting all excited about their deal and say 'Explain it to me in detail" .. then set the phone down and let them talk for a while.

Every time I've done this, when I went back to the phone they had hung up. Only one ever called back. He said 'I think we got disconnected'. I said 'Nope, I set the phone down and you talked a while, then hung up'. At which point he hung up again.

I went to bed after midnight, it still wasn't done. This morning it was ready.

Not without minor problems, so I'll start a new thread.

Correct sir. I ran Administrative Tools-->Disk Cleanup and clicked the "Clean up system files" button. I made sure to check all the file boxes and there was a Windows Update files in there somewhere. After I ran that the 90+ Gig Windows.old directory was gone.

Very interesting thread. I had just noticed that my system drive suddenly lost a lot of free space. I used Explorer to open the C drive and the last item on the list is Windowsold and it shows as 85.5 gigs. Why not just delete that folder?

Bob, in some cases Windows will keep some files in use. In that scenario you wouldn't be able to delete the folder as it would say some files are in use. When I looked in the folder, it looks like it had made backups of Program Files and Program Files (x86). Anyhow, if it deletes, go for it. I waited a couple of days after the Windows Update to make sure everything was working fine on my machine.

The Disk Cleanup option can at least wipe the folder if you cannot do it manually.

Might I suggest you keep Windows.old until you are sure your system is ok. Windows.old is your recovery version. Once you are sure you're safe then run the cleaner over it.

However if you were to revert back the first thing Windows would do is update again.
