Default Windows "Installer" folder taking up massive space

So lately ive been noticing my C Drive (250gb) getting smaller and smaller, even though I haven't downloaded much. Recently it ran out of space so i went through and deleted a bunch of stuff, but there was sill at least 100gb of unaccounted data. After much searching I finally found 120gb in the "Installer" folder.
Everywhere I look everyone says not to meddle with the folder and I cant seem to find anyone giving a straight answer on how to clean it up. If it were 30gb to 40gb like most people having this problem I could deal, but 120? There must be something in there I can get rid of, right?
Im using windows 7. (I dont know if any other specs are relevant, but im happy to disclose more if it will help)
