They are files which are normally hidden so you can't get at them. If you go to Control Panel, Folder Options, then the View tab, you'll see Hidden Files and Folders. Click in the Do not show hidden files and folders.

They then won't be shown when you go into the Windows folder

They are actually blue because they are compressed click here

They are Windows Update uninstall files - you can remove them click here
