You could remove those security updates but they're still security updates presumably patching vulnerabilities in the windows server. Take them out at your own risk, I would find a different way to save space.

The quickest way to identify what is taking up space is download and install treesize. they have free and paid versions.  I've used it before and it is a great app.
