    The "Add / Remove Programs" list has numerous entries named "Windows XP
    Hotfix". Is it possible or advisable to remove these entries. Will these
    continue to clutter up this list?
    Thanks

    No & yes. They are your downloaded security patches and updates. Leave
    well alone unless you have a specific problem with one.

    The hotfixes are installed when you run Windows Update. Those are the
    patches that were installed through it. You can search the Microsoft
    knowledge base for the numbers at the end of the Add/Remove programs entry
    (they usually look like Q2342522) nd that should tell you what the Hotfix
    'fixed' and then you'll know whether you'll need it or not.
