This isn't so much a problem as something I have noticed in add or remove
programs. I have noticed that some of the hot fixes showing up as installed
in the add remove programs section are showing a different icon to the
rest.The rest have a small computer icon but these have what can only be
described as a small orange maze like logo. The size on each is showing up
as 302 mb for each one despite the fact that they are small fixes. Whats
happened here? Fixes I have seen before always had the small computer icon.

MB? 302mb sounds too large. Do you mean 302KB? Are the icons similar to
the Office icon?

No. They say 302mb. The icon isnt the office icon. Its like a sideways
orange maze. If only there was a way to show you the icon lol

Having the wrong icon and a set size repeated for each hotfix is a common
occurence. You may see the icons randomly change as time goes by. I haven't
seen this since installing SP2 but wouldn't be surprised if it started
showing up again. Even though the icon and size representation are not
correct, the uninstall mechanism for the hotfixes is still operational.
