I would not- they hare part of Windows service pack one- in essence they are now part of your opeating system.

you could run fdisk and reformat that will ger rid of xp but your pc will not run without an OS

they are part of windows update remove them and you have problems, if your PC is running OK, and you have lots of HD space leave it alone . If it ain't broke don't fix it, just clean the outside
