How can i get rid of them?

First you have to delete the Products on the right View in WPP. After this you can select unused Products on the left side > right click > Delete Product.

It was greyed out first.
I found the solution here:

Now i have just one Vendor and one product left that cant be deleted:

Vendor: Lokaler Herausgeber
Product: Lokal veröffentlichte Pakete

The product category is empty but the "Delete Product" button is still greyed out

I actually don
t know if the folder was there form the start or if it has to be there.

Vendor: Lokaler Herausgeber
Product: Lokal veröffentlichte Pakete

This folder is created by Microsoft when Wsus install.
Leave it alone. You will not be able to delete it with WPP. It's by design.
