How can I delete a file which has been downloaded by W Update?

    I downloaded the most recent .net service pack. After the
    download my system started to install the service pack but
    would just hang. If I try to run the updater again the
    system sees that the files has already been downloaded.
    How can I delete the file on my system so the updater will
    re-download the file? My assumption is that something
    happened with the file to corrupt it. I let the system run
    overnight for the install and no progress was made.

  2. Hi

    Clean out this folder (WU5's temporary download folder) to get rid
    of the temporary installation files:


    (%windir% is typically C:\Windows)
