/StartComponentCleanup is available on Windows 8 and later or Windows Server 2012 and later.

You can try to use this instead. It will remove all installed files that got replaced by the latest SP.
dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /spsuperseded

i used the option  /spsuperseded, but i getting an output "Service PAck Cleanup cant proceed. No Service pack backup files were found"
You can install the Desktop Experience feature and run Disk Cleanup.
hi, i used diskcleanup, but it showing all 0 size, nothing is there to be deleted
It seems to be fine then.

What do you need to accomplish? Free up the C:\ drive? Something else?
yep, free up c:\drive
