Certain folders in the Program Files directory

I know this is probably an old question, but I can't find any answers so far.

There are a few folders in my Program Files directory that were definately installed with XP Pro (xerox, microsoft frontpage, gamingzone and something else...). I don't use any of these, ever, yet I can delete them, they're protected or something.

Any tips?

xerox, is a system file related to hardware I'd probably leave it alone. Gaming Zone you can Uninstall it Add&Remove Pograms if you like.

i don't know about anyone else, but inside my xerox folder there is another folder called nwwia, and there is nothing inside of it, no hidden files, no system files, so i suppose that you could delete it. SFC might bring it back on next boot though, but you can disable the SFC by using this guide.

Disclaimer:
I have not used this guide, nor do i know of the effectivness of this method. I also do not know how to reenable the SFC if needed.
Basicaly use this at your own risk.
