update history shows that the only thing that failed a couple of time to install was the definition for security essentials, but it did install eventually.

I can't see to find anything wrong in the event viewer log.

actually what should I be looking for in the event viewer log? cause all I found in there that's related to windows update was the failed downloads of the definitions.

You should be looking for anything that is a download. Repeated failures are one thing, but also regular updates would also explain a steady loss of space.

haven't found anything that is a download in the event viewer log yet, but I'm noticing with every start up it shows ton of errors.

a vast majority of them have the same event ID(7023) and error message: the specified module could not be found.

two of the events have the event ID 7003

and one event have the event ID 7001.
