  1. Here is a Batch script to empty the SoftwareDistribution Folder.  It stops any installer processes in the background, temporarily disables the Windows Update Service, deletes everything in the Software Distribution folder then sets the Windows update service back to automatic and starts the service.

    @echo off
    CD C:\
    taskkill /F /im setup.exe
    taskkill /F /im ose00000.exe
    taskkill /F /im msiexec.exe

    sc config wuauserv start= disabled
    net stop wuauserv

    PowerShell.exe Remove-Item C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\* -Force -Recurse

    sc config wuauserv start= demand
    net start wuauserv
