Removing Backup Files Left From SP2 Install

I install XP (Professional) Service Pack 2.
Everything is just fine.
When I apply an SP I generally say don't backup - if things don't work, I just rebuild. But no such option seemed available when I installed this SP. Now I have almost 200MB (compressed) of useless files I'd really like to get rid of.

Anybody know the "right" way to uninstall the sp uninstall?
