Updates are spread throughout the system. There is no way to "delete" them or the system would not even run.

What do you mean that you have "so many" and why does that matter?

If your system is stable, and you do not ever want to uninstall any updates in the future, it is all right to delete the "NTUninstall..." files in the Windows folder.

Updates replace things that were there already, so you are not accumulating more and more as you install them.
