Hi,

I got a question after I installed Service Pack 1. (Windows XP PRO)
After installed Service Pack 1, I realised all the pre-sp1 hotfix in add/remove are gone.
However, there are still many folders named $NtUninstallQ282010$ $NtUninstallQ307274$ ... etc. (31 of them)
Can I delete those? They are around 34MB.

Thanks.

You can delete them but I would just leave them. If your system needs them to correct a corrupt file you are going to be stuck. Try making a slipstream Cd of xp & sp1. When you need to format you'll end up with a nice clean system. It should also be OK to delete them once the cd is made.

If you are sure that there is no corresponding entry in add/remove you can delete them. Only thing you will probably loose is the possibility to uninstall single hotfixes after uninstalling SP1.
System file protection doesn't look for a missing file in these $NtUninstallQ..$ folders. It searches in ServicePackFiles.

I will make a slipstream Cd of xp & sp1, and delete those folders.
Cos I don't think I will uninstall them :p

Thank you all. :)

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
