    On my SSD machine, the C:\Windows\Installer folder is massive and takes up about 15% of my total disk space.

    Is there a way to clean up that folder without killing Windows 8.1? The way Microsoft wants to tuck away the installers on the OS partition doesn't make any sense (or they should have spent some more time coming up with a more elegant solution).
