I am running Symantec Antivirus Corp Edition 10.01 on our server.
It pushes out Definition updates to the cleints on the network.
We are running out of room on the C partition and I am noticing that there are 7.5 gigs in a folder called:
C:\Program Files\Symantec AntiVirus\CLT-INST\WIN32\Virus Defs

The files all have extentions of .zip and .x86.
I'm guessing it is safe to delete these from the server, but I can't find an answer on google.

thanks for the help

Yes, we have the same setup and you can safely delete these files. Clt-Inst is just an installation folder.
