If you're meaning the $NTUninstallKBxxxx folders, then if you've had no system problems attributable to updates they can be deleted. I purge older ones from time to time without any worries.

It's still not absolutely clear what you mean - if you're thinking of the updates and hotfixes listed if you tick Show updates in Add or Remove Programs, then no, they must remain installed in order to be effective. If you delete any of those, the security or stability of your computer would be compromised.
