Unknown files, folders in C:\Windows.
Posted on 2011-09-20
We have some Windows XP Pro PCs. In the C:\Windows folder there are about 100 folders that are named something like "$NtUninstallKB926436$." Also, there's about an equal number of notepad files named something like "KB926436.log."
I don't think any of these existed when we first got these PCs several years ago. I think over time we've been accumulating these (perhaps when we do updates?).
I was wondering:
1) Why do we have these files and folders?
2) Is it OK to delete them, because they're taking up about 2 GB of space.
