Just do a text search in

C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download

for

KB2952664

and delete anything you see; sometimes the CAB's, and their associated CAT / MUM / XML / etc. files are placed individually into the directory, rather than a UUID-labeled subdirectory.

If the reg entry deletions do not work then you must take ownership of the base [sub]root folder.

Also, note that KB2952664 can be referenced in

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Component Based Servicing\PackageDetect

as well as

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Component Based Servicing\Packages

I left references in

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Component Based Servicing\RecalledPackages

untouched, as "recalled" sounded plausible to leave alone.
