Microsoft recently updated its disk cleanup tool to also remove unnecessary Windows Updates after they are superseded by newer updates. This is quite useful on systems which haven't had a clean install in some time (like mine). I just ran it and it found 2.03GB of unnecessary files, could be useful for those with smaller capacity drives.
