I just got them the other day and so far, so good. I'm using XP Home. I don't remember what the ones in your list are all for, but I have excluded any that had to do with IE7 because I don't want to "upgrade" to it. And like you, I've hidden some others that did not apply to me.

When Microsoft scans your computer at the begining of the update process, it determines what OS you have and only offers updates for that OS. It won't offer a "Vista only" update for XP

Well, I've "heard", in the past, that Microsoft will list all the updates for your operating system, but if they are for something you don't actually need at that time it sort of installs them anyway, until if and when you may need them. In other words, I guess having them on your system won't hurt anything and they don't become 'active' until you're system has changed in some way that applies to the patch. Then it kicks in. Not a very techy answer, but that's the gist of it.
