As long as you won't be rolling back the windows updates you've installed, yes.

Those files are for uninstalling patches from Windows Update; if you delete them you won't be able to uninstall the corresponding patches.  But if you're confident that you won't need to uninstall any windows updates, go ahead and delete them (perhaps backing them up to CDs first, to be safe.)
