After an install, the sub-dir wininst0.400 should be removed
by the install routine.

If you look inside this sub-dir you will see it is the files needed to setup that pc. Sounds like you crashed out during an install and did not use safe recovery, but started a new install. Anyway, you may safely remove the wininstx.400 sub-dir(s)
