Surface Pro 5 News - release date, UK price, features, specs
I regularly accept windows updates, but i was just looking through the add/remove programme list on my comp to see if I can free up some space and found 50 updates all about 21mb in size. In my reckoning htat makes 1GB approx and I would love to save that space.
If I remove these Windosw updates, does it remove the upgrades? Alternatively I have a second hard drive running as a storage disk mainly. Could I move the folders to this drive to free up space.
Silly question I know but as these upgrades continue Windows will soon be the only programme on my hard disk.
Oops there's another just come up for IE. I suppose I had better download it.
(Please note I have NOT downloaded the update to watch Snow White with a Sony!!! I'm not htat sill. Besides I've seen it 10 times already!!)
PS Anyone got fed up with the AMD Banner hogging the tool bar every time they come to this site? I'm pig sick of it, give us a break PC Advisor. Maybe the Forum Editor can pass this comment on?. I keep clicking disable permanently but it keeps coming back!
I'm pretty certain that what you are proposing will in fact remove the updates, and could be a potential source of problems in the future. The updates don't just have to be downloaded and stored on the computer, they have to be installed. Regarding the banner that you talk about, I never see it. Download the Google tool bar and it will stop the pop ups without downloading a seperate pop up stopper program. Since i downloaded it a few days ago it has blocked 45 pop ups, mainly on this site. click here

You can delete the backup folders if you want - XP Remove Hotfix Backup - click here - Removes Hotfix Backup files and the Add/Remove Programs Registry entries. This free some space.

Already been covered in multiple threads here. PCA needs advertising this site is free. Live with it.
Thanks for help Jester.
Andsome: not sure about this one, I'm always supsicious of anything like this cos they all seem to use the'beneficial programmes/services as some form of knowledge gatherer.I realise its commerciality at the end of the day, but I am bexcoming increasingly concious of this sort of activity and tend to steer away from it.
I'm pretty sure you will be OK with the Google tool bar, and you can always uninstall it. Mine has now blocked 52 pop ups.
there are a lot of pc advice sites around and they are free but their not plastered with amd or other silly adds like it so we shouldn't have to live with it
Fine - go to them then. See if they are as good as this one.
Well thanks everyone. As usual I am now sorted and yes I do find this site to be good, so I'll keep using it
