Lol sorry my bad.. Guess i overlooked it :)

I was reading up to see if there is a way and so far it seems that our buddies at microsoft have intergrated the whole OS.

I belive that there is no way to 'remove' the additional feature files at this time( Apart from disabling the feature)

Good luck.

Ikelca--This reference claims to "remove" WAU, but I am not sure it does more disable.
There are three files in the Windows|System32 folder with the name " WindowsAnytimeUpgrade..."
You could manually remove them, but they are less than 1MB in size total.

i know how to disable it by gpedit.msc
i want to know where are those files for upgrade located, so by uninstalling anytime upgrade, i can release some hard drive space.
