Can old files in the Update folder on a server be safely deleted?

I want to delete old files in the update folder on a Windows 2003 server.  It's a AD DC.  Is this safe?

Is this the WUTemp folder you're referring to?  If so, you can safely delete all files in that folder.

No.  there is an "update" folder in ther root of "C".  All the files have dates of 2005 or older. Some are temp are have .exe.  I tried running one and it stated that the version of Windows doesn't match the update.

This is probably a folder that store all the downloaded patches, update.... it is OK to remove them because they won't hurt your file system. However, you may want to move them to the different storage in case you want to reuse them later on other servers.
To save more spaces, all the files under temp folder can be deleted. You can access to these file by typing: %temp% on your windows explorer or start --->run --> %temp%
