These appear if you tell the system to back up the Uninstall data during an update, typically a Service Pack or system security update. If there is a "KB#xxxx" this refers to an entry in the Microsoft Knowledge Base.

They're quite harmless unless you are running critically low on disk space, and very rarely you may have to uninstall one in order to fix a problem. You can only do that if the uninstall file is still available, which is a good reason not to monkey with them in general.

Whether or not you can see them may depend on the level of user privileges you have on your current login, and whether or not you still have the default Folder Options settings that hide system files.
