Those are the security hot fixxes from Microsoft to plug any security holes in the OS and some of the programs that are in it....

Deleting those will leave your computer open to virus's / hacker's/ and spyware...

Just leave them alone, and to be shure you have them all updated, go to Microsoft.com

and check the Critical Updates...Let it scan your computer to see if any are missing.
