I'm running 10.6.5 and do not want to upgrade. Software Update has conveniently downloaded a 1.09 GB update that I have no interest in installing - it is downloaded but is sitting dormant - but I can't find it to remove it... could someone tell me where/how to remove?

Try looking in /Library/Updates. The updates will be installer packages with extension .pkg

Thanks - I had to browse in Terminal, as Finder wasn't showing me the Updates folder. Everyone should check this folder out, it's unreal how many old updates are sitting in here taking up space. At least 6 GB... – 分かりません Feb 19 '13 at 5:13
