g'day mauripereg and welcome,

can you give us the name of the file in question?

as a general rule, removing system files willy-nilly is not a good idea.

thank mta for your aswer.

sorry but the description of my problem is wrong....

I know that every time I execute Windows update the files updated are stored in my disk

so that after some months I have some Giga occupied by these files...

Can I delete these files with Ccleaner.

quick answer is Yes, but for those sort of files, I find using the inbuilt MS cleaner a better option.

start an elevated command prompt and type in cleanmgr c: /sageset:1
tick all the boxes in the window that pops up.  hit OK.
then type in cleanmgr c: /sagerun:1

that will clean up all leftover update files.
