My C:\Windows folder is 6.27 GB in size. This is from the initial install of Windows XP with Service Pack 3 and includes all critical updates since.

If the folder names begin with something like $NtUninstallKB..... they are placed there by Windows Update and they correspond to every update that's been applied to Windows XP.
