When viewing programs on the "Add/Remove" in the control panel, I noticed
a number of Updates for Outlook and for Security updates.
Can these be removed without effecting my system?
I am listing these here:

Update for Office 2003 (KB907417):OTKLOADR (would not allow me to remove it).
Update Office 2003 Sevice Pack2(SP2): MAINSPop
Update for Office 2003(KB913807): OLKINTLff
Security Update for Powerpoint 2003 (KB923091): POWERPOINT
Updates for Office 2003(KB923097):STLIST
Security Update for Office 2003(KB924424): MSXML5
Security Update for Office 2003(KB923272): MSO
Security Update for Word 2003(KB923094): WINWORD
Update for Office 2003 (KB919029:) LCCWIZ
Update for Outlook 2003 : Junk E-Mail Filter (KB9255340; OUTFLTR
SECURITY UPDATE FOR OUTLOOK 2003 (KB924085:): OUTLOOK
Security Update for Excel 2003 (KB925257): EXCEL

Additionally, Since I never used "Microsoft Works" is it safe to remove it
from my system too?

Thanks in advance,

Anything you remove in Add/Remove is uninstalled, so unless you want to undo the updates, you do not want to remove the update entries.

Works can be safely removed if you don't want it.

If MS works is your only word processing program you better keep it. If you have MS office or Word you can go ahead and delete MS works.

Thanks for the information. I almost made a "boo boo" thinking that I was just removing the files that made the updates,rather than the updates themselves.
As for MSWorks, I will take it off since I use only Outlook 2003.
I'll mark this as "solved".
