Windows 7: can i get rid of the hotfixes backup?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

TuneUp Utilities used to have the option to clean WU backups. Windows 7 Manager (Yamicsoft) does have this options too, but you have to check it first in the option panel of "Junk File Cleaner".
(Those are paid software, still the trial version of Windows 7 Manager is fully functional for 15 days)

Hmmmm.... methinks that would take a really good crystal ball!
Obviously, if you have uninstalled a program and Ccleaner finds traces of it, it is pretty safe to delete those keys.
I was referring to making the keys before the program is installed.
