    SP2, XP Pro. Safely installed and stable now after a few minor gliches. Went to Add/Remove and none of the long list of Hotfixes is there anymore, just SP2. Reg Seeker seems to be listing all of them for removal. Glad to do so, but wanted to check here before doing so. Is it safe to eliminate the registry entries for the "old" Hotfixes?

    To be more exact. Among the GREEN marked entries (safe for deletion according to RegSeeker) are a group of registry entries all called Obsolete Entries. Examples=KB10243, a bunch other KB's then a series of Q's. These appear to be the pre SP2 Hotfixes. The path: Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppManagement\ARPCache\KB10243 and so on . Altho the Add/Remove listing is gone, these individual fixes are still on the computer. Watching asquared run, I saw all of them listed. I question whether they are truly "obsolete" despite what this program tells me. Any suggestions? :confused:
