Unhappy windows xp hotfix

Have noticed I have eleven instances of the above in my install/uninstall programmes. what does it mean? What are they? Loathe to delete in case they are important. They have no size or date attached.
ps They are suffixed by the following sp2(see Q329115) (different no's)

yeah, they are usually just normal updates or security fixes within windows. don't uninstall them.
A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.

Also please use the search button. You've got a 50/50 chance that someone's asked your question and we've answered it.
