It might be that even if you remove the update something is still left behind which initiates the download. Try this. Make sure everything that needs to be removed is removed and anything else is right clicked and hidden. Open an admin command prompt and type (or copy and paste): cleanmgr/sageset:1 Press enter You'll see a Disk Clean dialogue box appear but this is like an advanced version with many more checkboxes. Go through the checkboxes making sure you check the boxes for old update data. Click ok and the box will disappear. To get the advanced Disk clean app, you've just set up, to run type this (in the same admin command prompt): cleanmgr/sagerun:1 Press enter and it will cycle. Once again whether this works or not is up for debate but it's worth a try i guess?
