Update Cleanup is a Security software developed by PC Shareware, Inc.. After our trial and test, the software is proved to be official, secure and free. Here is the official description for Update Cleanup:

BrothersoftEditor: Update Cleanup safely removes the backup files that were created when installing a Windows hotfix or service pack update. Removing the old backup files with Update Cleanup will free up hard disk space. This utility will also remove the associated Registry entries for these items -- entries that visibly show up as unnecessary program entries in the Add/Remove Programs panel.

Microsoft regularly makes available critical Windows XP and Windows 2000 security patches (or hotfixes as they are also called) which ensure that your operating system keeps up to date. These patches/hotfixes are obtained in a variety of ways:
A) By visiting the Windows Update or Microsoft Update website (accessible from your START button).

B) Through the Automatic Update service which runs in the background on your PC and weekly checks for recently issued updates/patches/hotfixes.

C) By System Administrators downloading and applying patches and hotfixes to your PC.

Regardless of how the patch/hotfix is obtained one thing you should be aware of: All of the files that will be replaced are backed up on your hard drive just in case the update goes awry and you need to return your PC to its prior state. These older files that are replaced are stored in hidden Folders in your Windows system folder.

Over time these backup folders Accumulate and can occupy a significant amount of disk space. For example a typical Windows 2000 PC would have had over 80 patches/hotfixes installed between Fall 2002 and Fall 2005. These 80+ updates created 80+ folders and contain thousands of old files. On a typical Windows XP PC a user could expect to find over 3 dozen patches/hotfixes installed over a period of just 12 months! The amount of hard disk space occupied by these old, backed up files could easily reach 800 megabytes. Are these backed up files useful to retain, or can they be deleted and disk space freed up?
