Win...I think here  C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download

 

That's only part of where it would create them, and that's only the cache from Microsoft Update/Windows Update - what it downloads and stores. On XP at least updates would create folders that started with a dollar sign $somefoldername which is what CCleaner used to delete, and had to stop due to complaints.
