Then as Allan stated. Go to Add\remove, make sure Show updates is checked, and proceed to uninstall them. You will get a pop-up stating the program can not be found do you want to remove the corresponding entry in Add\remove. OK it and move on to the next.
Should you get any other warning regarding uninstalling an entry then it is probably for an update that the $uninstall$ file was not deleted for. This may be for any number of reasons. IMO do not
uninstall it and move on to the next. This seems to pertain in particular to IE updates.
As a final clean-up touch. Empty the recycle bin. Run a system defrag. You should be all set.
