    Hi,

    I was just wondering where the uninstalled updates are stored? I have my
    option set to download but not install. If I choose not to install an
    update, is it deleted or does it remain saved on my computer somewhere? (in
    case I change my mind and want to install it later)

    thanks,

    They reside there for a period of time that is set in the registry and
    then are deleted. There *should* be an offer to install downloads in
    that subfolder that have not been installed via Automatic Updates IF the
    update was not Hidden.
