CCleaner does not delete the updates themselves. It does, however, delete temp and log files associated with such updates. This is usually not problematic, but it can prevent you from uninstalling some uppdates, including Windows Updates, so if you are uncomfortable with it you can adjust the settings to leave the log files behind.

I use the Applications Tab of CCleaner

I uncheck Grisoft, Spybot S&D, Ad-Aware SE, WMP11 & Macromedia and under Windows, System, Temporary Files. I always look before I delete.
