    How do you delete a downloaded update that won't install

    Microsoft update KB2494113 was downloaded to my computer a couple weeks ago. I've tried to install it multiple times, but it must be corrupted or incomplete, or whatever. How can I delete this downloaded file to be able to get a new copy of the update?

    I would go to the MS website and download that update manually. Then you won't have to bother trying to persuade auto update to do the right thing.

    cheers, Paul
