sure, you cant remove them from the console, but you can decline the patches and let the cleanup wizard remove them to save you some space.

Thank you for your answer, but do i really have to check if every individual update is for Windows 2000?

For some updates it's obvious from their name, like 'Security Update for Windows 2000 (KBxxxxx),
but for some updates like 'XXXXX Critical Update' or 'Security Update for DirectX X.Y (KBxxxxx)
i have to look under Additional Details / Products to see for what OS the update is.

Can i somehow sort the updates by OS?

I almost got it.

Created a New Update View, selected Updates for a specific product, checked Windows 2000 only.

Got a list of Windows 2000 related patches, deleted all with 'Windows 2000' in their name, checked
the rest if they apply to other OS-es too, and if they were Windows 2000 only deleted them also.

Greetings to all.

create a new view under patches, select product type and then select only windows 2000. That should get most of them for you. I would quickly look over the patches before you decline them and make sure the patch says for Windows 2000 in the name. if it doesnt you may want to go over it really quick.
