    Cleaning out files

    This is probably a beginner question, but I want to know if after a windows update has been installed, can I delete the update itself. To me, it seems that after the update is installed and I keep the original - that I have two copies of the same thing on my computer. Hope this makes sense. Thanks for your time and answer.

    Set the updater to notify.
    When you are notified, right clikck and then hide. It will be gone.
    Why install and then uninstall, usually no problems, but why take the chance?

    Windows upadter only sends once, I dont understand about duplicates; but the above lets you do what you want.

    I'm curious about the duplicate as well. Where is the duplicate?
