My laptop is forever installing Windows updates to the extent that the windows operating system is now hogging 67% of my 70GB hard drive. Will this continue to the point were my hard drive will no longer have the capacity?????
You're not deleting the updates, when windows installs an update it makes a back up copy of the previous settings so that you can back track should it prove unstable, they go under the name of Hotfix uninstallers. If you're satisfied that the updates are working OK it's easy enough to delete these back up files. One of the simplest ways of doing this is to run CCleaner with "Hotfix uninstallers" option ticked in the advanced settings. click here
No, there usually is no reason to uninstall, or delete, any of the hotfixes. Some people do have to if there are software compatibility problems. If these updates do cause a problem, you would more than likely know quite soon afterward.
When Microsoft learns about and issues a new Hotfix, to fix the bad update, it may be that the old one has to be "found", but I am not sure.
Most of them also can be uninstalled through Add/Remove Programs.
