Help needed with XP clutter.

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.general (More info?)

Help needed to clear out clutter from Xp installation. I'm sure if I
look around I'll find the answers to my questions, trouble is on this
occassion I don't have time so please help. I'm really caught between a
rock and a hard place.

I'm trying to regain some disk space and have noticed in the windows
folder there are a lot of files $NTUninstallKBXXXXXX plus KBXXXXXX plus
QXXXXXX. Can these be safely removed if I don't wish to uninstall any
XP updates. I know about deleting *.TMP and *.chk file but are there
any others that I can get shot of without regretting it.

Thanks in advance,

duffsparky.

    Any advise given is my attempt to show appreciation for all
    the excellent help I've received here but I'm no MVP so it
    may only apply NUGS (Normally, Usually, Generally, Sometimes :)

    That's a great sentiment. It would be even better if you spelled
    "advice" correctly. (The noun is "advice"; "advise" is a verb.)

    I'd have e-mailed you privately, but you choose to post with a bogus
    address.

    A: Maybe because some people are too annoyed by top-posting.
    Q: Why do I not get an answer to my question(s)?
