Looks like a .NET Framework update ... you should probably leave them alone.

In reviewing the list, you have English as the language on the left side of the screen and Portuguese on the right side of the screen. Do you actually download files in Portuguese? I see the one file for a Windows update, but other than that, things seem unusual with an intermixed use of 2 languages.

The permissions issue can be with either a directly attached drive or with an external drive, depending on the file.

Could you please reply to my prior post regarding language.
