    If you checked the box that reads "System Update Cleanup" when using Disk Cleanup/Cleanup System files, you already instructed the utility to remove those files from your system. If you didn't perhaps I misunderstood your posting. AFAIK, Disk Cleanup is the most likely way to remove such files from your system. I just learned yesterday that
    dism /online /cleanup-image /analyzecomponentstore
    can also handle this task as well, but I'm guessing that may not have been the cleanup technique you used here.

Title. I can't get rid of it. It has survived me doing the disk cleanup twice now as well as reboots (figured it was just stuck visually in the file manager). How can I get rid of it.
