Removed "failed updates" in Win 7 update history

Is there a way to edit the log for Windows update history to remove the failed updates as in the attached jpg ?

I have solved the issue of them failing...but would like to delete these and other "failed" entries

Thanks....TRinAz

There is no need whatever to remove the entries - that's all they are (entries in a database)., they are not separate downloads and take almost no space on the drive.
