Possible explanation here?:Jaimes_Phazon said:My Program files only add up to about 3.7 GB, but my C:\WINDOWS\Installer folder is over 12GB?
This was happening to me too. So I think that is the problem. MS Office 2003 updates were not installing and I think they kept downloading and making back-ups to install from thus making the C:Windows/Installer folder take up lots of space. So how would I go about safely getting rid of all those unnecessary files?"also wondering if the presence of these files (im guessing other computers dont have this massize amount of the miles) has anything to do with the fact that i cant seem to get alot of the updates for office 2003 to work. whenever i do automatic updates, all the updates for outlook and excel do not install. perhaps when this happens it is creating backup insall files of these updates?
