    Where are the Updates stored when they're being downloaded?


    Man... I'm exhausted on searching about where are the windows updates are placed when they're downloaded?

    1) I know they aren't in %temp% or %appdata%.
    2) I know they vanishes after being installed.

    --> I want to know where are they being prison-ed whey they're being downloaded?

    Just as someone also want to know -> I have Windows 10 Home (Non N BTW).

    And yeah one more thing Thanks in Advance...
