Default What's Windows XP Hotfix???

I was in my add/remove programs list awhile ago and saw like 20 if these programs called Windows XP Hotfix. What the heck are they, I don't remember downloading them. Each ones has a bunch of letters and numbers at the end of its name. For example, the first one looks liek this, Windows XP Hotfix - KB82741. It's so weird cuz there's like 20 of them and I don't know when I got them or what they are. I don't wanna just delete them though cuz I might actually need them. Thanks as always to whoever helps.

Desktop: Athlon 64 3700, 1024M RAM, GF 6200 TC 256M, 2x 80G, 2x DVD-RW
Laptop: Sempron 2800, 512M RAM, Unichrome, 60G, DVD-RW
Macintosh:G4 1.33GHz, 512M RAM, Radeon 9200 32M, 40G, DVD/CDRW
They get me from 0 to 1...

Default Morning...

A hotfix is where MS discovered a hole in the xp os and created a patch to close it. For some reason they show up in the add/remove programs listing. DO NOT try to remove them...
