I would say it have according to the reg key name.
But I don't think the files in there are too important.
In fact I have not such registry key.

Hi howart,

Microsoft added the SoftwareDistribution and EventCache folders with the advent of Windows XP Service Pack 2. This folder assists when doing Windows Updates.
