    Unable to complete win anniversary downlaod - how to remove

    Windows started downloading/installing the anniversary update but couldnt complete because of space limit. It has a fix button and if pressed it tries again. I actually dont want the update and have now hid it with the show hide tool. Still in settings/update it shows. Is there any way to remove it? Has it already downloaded something and if so, how can i remove it. Thanks

    Hi, I believe you'll need to delete the contents of C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\

    This is easily done in Safe Mode.

    I recently did this when the latest AU large update hung (happened to many) to allow another attempt.

    You'll lose your update history.

    Looks like it is gone from updates so I guess it is obeying the hide.
