    I am sure this has been discussed but my searching did not yield an answer - perhaps poor choice of words. Anyway, in Add/Remove Programs there are Java, J2SE, .NET framework service packs, MSXML service packs. There are probably 15 of these all >100 Mb. Do I need them? Can I delete all but the most recent one of each? Thanks. -Bob

    If you uninstall them, you'll be backing out the update. In theory, you should be able to uninstall something that's an older update that's had a newer update applied, but that's not always the case.

    Huh?

    Sometimes, a new patch will just add to the earlier patch, and blowing out the older patch will cripple or kill the new patch (or worse - it could take your machine down). Not always, of course, but it's happened to several people I know.
