Can't Make enough space.

I receive daily requests on my laptop to make enough space to download and install a software update, but I cannot make enough space for it without legitimately restoring the laptop to its Factory Default State. How do I make the Update Requests stop coming?

    to free up some space try doing Shift + Delete on all files within the C:\Windows\Temp folder
    (doing the Shift with Delete permanently deletes the files as opposed to just moving them to the recycle bin which wont free space)

    & to stop windows from asking you to run windows updates you can just disable the "windows update" services in services
