Question Removing old updates

I have Windows XP updates from 2005 & 2006. Can I remove them? I am not sure how long you should keep the older updates before you can remove them. Thanks for any help.

You should just leave the updates alone.

My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.
