Hello all, just cleaning up my hard drive. Looked in add/remove pregrams in control panal and came across several entries, Windows XP Hotfix, with various numbes after them. They all have when they were installed. I was wondering if i need to keep all these programs or if i can delete any of them, just leaving the last one that was installed? Would like any help with this, thanks,
morgueman

Keep them all

Yes keep them all, you need them or your pc does.
If you do delete them, windows updates will only replace them so you will be going round in circles not unless you are replacing a sp, eg sp1 for sp2 which is a little more involved and not to be done lightly or for the novice.

"you are replacing a sp, eg:sp1 for sp2"

Should read the other way around, sp2 for sp1!
