    Make sure, that System Restore is enabled, if you have a small partition, it will be disabled by default.

    You mean Download folder? Well, if you have problems yes, but it is not recommend to do it without a reason.

    You can clean everything, unless you do not want to revert back to the previous Windows within the next 30 days.

    thanks for the info.

    Btw why isit so difficult to access system restore now? Does the system automatically create restore point for me since the day i started using 10?

    In the Start button's search field type system restore. You will get Create a restore point. That leads to a d. box called System Properties, with a tab called System Protection opened. In my system Available Drives includes Windows (C :) (System) and it is checked.

    Press Create and a d. box appears Create a restore point. Type in something to identify why you created it (eg, "Just before KB 123456 update"and press Create. A progress bar opens for about a minute and that's it.

    In the first d. Box (same route to get to it from the beginning) press System Restore... then press Next in the next d. box and you will get a list of your restore points. Select one and press Next and you can roll back to that restore point.

    I have used System Restore on Windows 7 several times and found it reliable.

    PS Someone here said that returning, after the August 2 Anniversary Update, to a System Restore point set before the August 2 Anniversary Update, will have no effect.
