Removing $NTUninstallKB***** folders and Add/Remove listings

There are approximately more than 50 of these files listed at the start of the Windows sub-folder list. I want to remove these also and any service pack uninstall folders. So, is there any of these files that I have to keep? I also want to remove all of these listings from the Add and Remove Programs list. Can anyone tell me how to do this? Thanks.

Try to remove old Windows Updates. There are folders that have uninstalled as part of the name, for example, $NtUninstallKB282010$ that is located in C:\windows hidden folders which are Windows Hot Fix Update folders/files, that can be safely deleted, providing you never wish to uninstall the updates. I would tell you to leave these folders for a period of atleast a month to make sure update is working fine.
