    Hotfixes are just another word for windows updates/patches. I wouldn’t remove them. As a matter of fact, I would run windows updates to make sure that I have all of them.

    Do you have SP2 installed? If you do, you can just uncheck the “show updates” box on add/remove programs and they won’t show up.

    Don't remove, it is necessary for your OS so that it's up to date.

    Don't remove them unless you want the box to bugcheck.
