    Default deleting uninstall folders?

    I have about 25 uninstall folders within my windows folder on my C: drive. Can I safely delete these folders within windows explorer?

    Thanks in advance!

    Can you give us an example of the names of these uninstalls and where exactly are they (eg C: or C:\windows etc). I think you may be refering to the Microsoft updates, but need to know more about them.

    On C: drive in Windows folder. They all look like this:
    $NtuninstallKB.......
    (with numbers at the end)

    I believe they are my updates.

    Thanks for responding.

    Yes, they are MS updates. If all is running well on your PC, you could delete uninstalls let's say, older than 3 months. This is just a precaution, but it's good to leave some time before deleting should any update problems occur .. it would be very hard to uninstall an update without the Uninstall feature.
