I upgraded via "OPTION /U" this morning. The updater left
{1948DD3B-5B8E-48E1-B620-385FB506AAF2}.bat in the temp directory. Here's the complete (though it looks incomplete) contents of that file.

Code:
@echo off 
del "e:\temp\fb50b35121e67cd6c57727dba643802d\updater.ini" 
del "e:\temp\fb50b35121e67cd6c57727dba643802d\updater.dat" 
:again 
if not exist "e:\temp\fb50b35121e67cd6c57727dba643802d\updater.exe" goto end 
if exist "e:\temp\
And the three files mentioned in that batch file still exist.

That's pretty typical for the installer / updater. And there's absolutely
nothing that I can do about it.

You're always free to delete anything in your temp directory.
