I always delete those after a while, until I see that the patch didn't do
anything bad.
More unregularly (once every 2nd month or so) I use Spybot S&D and run the
tool called System Internals (I think it's called) and let it scan the
registry and remove the pointers to the removed uninstall-folders.

All those folders in the c:\winnt folder with names like
