Microsoft updates folder


Recommended Posts

CCleaner is coded to ignore the $hf_mig$ folder. A forum search will reveal the reason why it isn't cleaned anymore.

 

Edit: Then again a forum search won't work, it doesn't find those old threads.

 

Edit 2: Just learned something the dollar signs goof up the search function, try this search of hf_mig and you'll understand after reading a few threads why that folder should be left alone.

Another improvement suggestion:

 

CCleaner will be able to restart Windows Update. Recreating a new \WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution" folder and WindowsUpdate text file (logfile).

 

This procedure can correct svchost.exe escalation bug when svchost request 100% of CPU usage.

If you want to flush SoftwareDistribution all you need is Dial-a-fix, the link is available in my signature listed below.
