Windows Update will only install updates appropriate for the operating system in use.

You shouldn't be seeing updates for Windows Server2003 or XP - although some updates apply to all operating systems, there are different versions for XP to those for Vista and Win7 - and probably a different one again for Win8.

What KB numbers are associated with these updates?
