    WUTemp is the temporary folder used by Windows Update. In my experience, it is cleared after a successful installation. If the subfolders are still there after restarting your machine, I'd say it is safe to clear the contents of WUTemp. You can delete the folder itself, but it will be recreated next time you use Windows Update, so I'd leave it.

    A side note to Hans' comments - anything you place in there will also vanish after Windows Update completes, so don't use it as your own place to stash things temporarily!
