I have windows 2003 server standard and the installer folder in windows is 50 GB big.  I have read different things that tell me different ways to clean this up.  What do you recommend is the safe way to do this?

In case the page goes away; essentially you download the Windows Installer Cleanup Tool from Microsoft which comes with a command line utility called msizap.exe. After installing the tool, run:

C:\Program Files\Windows Installer Clean Up\msizap G!

And it will automatically remove any .msp files that are not registered on your system.
