I just fired up Steam today and had 14 downloads which is strange. Why are there so many updates today?

You will be redownloading the "_CommonRedist" folder of any game you have installed (assuming they have one). The folders were deleted through those 0KB updates that went up during the last Steam maintenance. It was clarified here by a community moderator.
