    Default winsxs Bloat

    Hi,



    My laptop's winsxs folder bloated to 7.75GB of a 60GB disk. This
    appears to be rather large especially for a modest laptop with few
    applications. This happened rather suddenly. It adds substantially
    to
    backups as well. (By contrast, winsxs on my XP desktop is a few
    hundred MB). Is there any help for this?

    I am running Vista Premium SP1 on an HP572 laptop.

    Thanks,
    Gary
