Cleanup after fresh windows server 2003 installation

After installing Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2 and then running every single windows update, the disk space used is huge. This is mainly due to all the hotfix / updates and their rollback data, etc.

"If you go to your windows directory, you will see a lot of $ntuninstallKB$ directories. For example - c:\windows\$NtUninstallKB961371$\

In addition to individual KB updates above, service packs are located in the $hf_mig$ directory.... Take a look for other dollar directories as well as these are usually always updates.

Personally, I wouldn't remove them - however, having said that, I have never rolled back a update so maybe I should remove mine! :S"
