This isn't right is it?
The list is a mile long.
This is on my ATX tower/celeron/Intel D845GVSR running XP SP-3 (in my specs)

I see you have Show updates checked, just uncheck the box then try re-launch the Tool.

The Windows update history for XP is by the Add or Remove programs tool while in Vista and Win 7 is via Control Panel - System and Security - Windows Update (Check for updates/Turning on or off updates/Viewing and removing installed updates options). You could also type by the Search Programs and Files on the Start menu by typing keywords windows update or view installed updates as a filter shortcut for Vista and Win 7.
