Hi folks,I'm in the process of trying to clean up my brothers computer a bit.It's running very slow and the hardrive is almost full.In the windows folder there are over 100 folders highlighted blue called NT uninstall.Does anyone know how to get rid of them please?Thanks.P.s I've tried cleaner but to no avail.

If your PC is behaving properly you can remove the Windows hotfix backup files and their corresponding entries in Add/Remove Programs. Download, extract and run this little script click here

Create a system restore point first (WinXP) just in case anything goes wrong during the registry updating.

Alternatively, copy them to a CD, manually delete them from the \Windows folder but leave the now orphaned Add/Remove Programs entries intact. Do not delete the $hf_mig$ folder, only the $NTUninstallKB….. folders.

Can you tell me what I should remove?There is 10 windows hotfix entries and a lot of windows updates.Is it just the windows hotfix entries that I should uninstall?Thanks.

I've downloaded the hotfix removal tool.Will this actually remove the updates?

No - it just removes the backups and the associated registry entries.
