Default Re: Wierd Folders in My Computer

im about 99% sure theyve been on since the beginning... i opened them and the contain other folders (2 of them have folders named "SP1" with a subfolder named "Update and in that there is an Update.exe and a DLL file, the other two dont have the "SP1" folder in them they just have the Update folder an in that the exe and dll)

Is this like Service Pack 1, because i am on SP2... does that mean its safe to delete them?... i dont wanna screw anything up... theyre really not hurting anything i guess... they r just annoying

I agree with Ronco Rox, they are Temp files from previous downloads. I would say it is safe to delete them. Windows by default sends things to the recycle bin, so you if you delete them, and have problems, you should be able to go back to the recycle bin, and restore the folders if you have any problems. If it gives you a message saying the files won't fit, permanently delete, just choose no.

Agreed, safe to delete. They're temp files from Windows updates, I've deleted a few myself these last couple of days

well usually if it were important folders, they would be either in the program listings or in the WINDOWS folder under system or system 32.

if they keep reappearing in your documents folder, they are probably web related temp folders.
