I have a number of folders in the root of my system drive, named 65e3f9af2314f5f6196bc7387a90, 9899b278483282d25b, 9939cfaca89f1e6a57f4, 46114d7f8ef783043f450446b3aa98 and bd7bffc05f16c91366d3fb0f410b, that typically contain numerous local-specific subfolders (e.g. 1033_enu_lp, 1041_jpn_lp, 1046_ptb_lp, etc.) Each subfolder typically contains a eula.rtf file, a dll, possibly other folders, etc.)

When I try to delete these, I get an error that states "You require permission from SYSTEM to make changes to this folder". Our desktop support team is even unaware of how to remove these files, or if we should even attempt to. They appear to be various files from Microsoft updates to VS 2008 and SQL Server 2008 (from the contents of the EULA files left behind).

Does anyone know if they can be removed and how to do so. They are not taking up a huge amount of space, but on a 120GB SSD drive, 600MB of space can be a lot.
