there the results of various windows updates that you have ran, yes you can delete them but you got to understand that if anything go's wrong system restore probably wont work, so its only if you really need the space you can delete them, if there not causing a problem, leave em alone mate.

These are uninstall dirs and contain info needed for removing a patch. If you delete the you can not remove patches afterwards.

System Restore will still function without these directores. By design its meant to cope with missing system files as it is a backup solution!

Its recommended you may a restore point before and afterwards and also remove the associated reg entries releating to the uninstall menu.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
You will see them listed as Qxxxxxx

Do not remove any other referance to them from the reg otherwise windows will not be able to confim patch installation.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
