This one is mostly the backup of the windows updates and you may will find
it with the extension:
wuredir.cab.bak for backup.
Do the following:
Open Windows Explorer and locate these paths:
C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution = Delete all Folders in the Right
Pane/Window (like download,updates..etc.)
Then this path:
C:\Windows\Temp\Temporary InternetFiles\IE.5Content = Delete all here.
Open a run command and type in:
sfc /scannow click [OK] let it run then Reboot into Safe Mode and Defrag
2... Secondly, try to clean up your caches, Internet files and delete cookies
by doing this:
Click Start >> Control Panel >> Double click Network and Internet
Connections >> Double click Internet Options.
On the IE properties windows you will see these Taps:
General | Security | Privacy | Content | Connections | Programs |
Under General Tab clear your History, Internet Files and Cookies.
Then click on Advanced tab and scroll down to under the Browsing Option:
[ ] Enable Third-Party browser extensions (Req Rest) uncheck this box.
