These files contain the required backed up copies of older files that a recent windows update installed. Without these files you would be unable to remove the windows update. These files are normal on Windows machines.

If you don't need to uninstall any updates you may safely delete those files. AFTER deleting them you can go to ADD/REMOVE and delete the update entries.
