They are normal Windows updates. They are visible in add/remove programs because you have the 'show updates' check-box ticked.

I am currently helping you with a HJT log in Malware. You got those results after I asked you to provide some more information in that thread. If you have any questions regarding those results, ask them in your existing malware thread, do not start another thread elsewhere. If I find any more threads of this nature, I will have no alternative other than to withdraw my assistance on your HJT log. If you have a problem with this, let me know and I will step out now.
