I just did a vlite install of vista64 sp1. everything went great, after installing apps etc i had about a 3.5 gig vista installation. I then connected to windows update and installed about 100 meg of updates, after a restart my vista install is now over 7gig and the winsxs folder has grown from just over 1 gig to 4.5 gig. Is this right? can it be stopped ? why did it grow so much after just 100 meg of updates ? thanks for any help or info.
