You should not delete any system files belongs to Windows OS these system files stored in C:\Windows folder and its subfolders.


The Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) tool can be use to analyze the size of the component store and reduce the size of the component store (WinSxS folder). The WinSxS folder is located in the Windows folder, for example C:\Windows\WinSxS. It’s the location for Windows Component Store files. The Windows Component Store is used to support the functions needed for the customization and updating of Windows. Component store (WinSxS folder) contains all the components that make-up Windows to allow you operate your system. These components are kept to rollback any problematic change or to repair a file that becomes corrupted.


Open the Command Prompt as a Administrator.


Reduce the size of the component store by typing following command:
 

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup

You can reduce the size of the component store further by adding the /ResetBase parameter. The installed Windows Updates cannot be uninstalled after the '/StartComponentCleanup' with '/ResetBase' operation is completed.

Type following command:
 

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase

You can use WinDirStat program to find out sizes of files that are taking more disk space than other files and delete files you don't need.

 

Clean all temporary files with CCleaner program.

 

Open the Command Prompt as a Administrator.

 Net stop wuauserv 

Rd  /s  /q  %SystemRoot%\SoftwareDistribution

Above command will delete folder where cache of Windows updates stored.  Reboot your computer and try installing Windows updates again.

I don't understand are you saying you can't start Command Prompt?

 

Those commands does not cause any Windows OS issues.

I don't see any error message from Dism command you must have not waited for the Dism command to execute.
 
 

Also its the cbs.log that is 64gb

 
Here is how PowerShell can delete the cbs.log file if it gets out of control (you can safely delete this file; the trusted installer creates a new one if it can’t find it):

Stop-Service TrustedInstaller

Remove-Item -Path C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log

Start-Service TrustedInstaller
