Everytime an update is installed, it will create an $Ntuninstallxxx$ directory under C:\WINNT, these can be backed up and/or deleted if satisified the update is ok. The downloads are removed once installed.

Try deleting or reducing size of User Profiles in c:\Documents and Settings.
Also, run the Disk clean utility to remove unwanted files.

I would suggest moving the page file. This is usually 1.5X installed RAM. You may also be able to move the Exchange Database to another drive.

Hope this Helps!
