Installed by WindowsXP, and protected by Microsoft as a core component, apparently licensed from Xerox. Don't sweat it.

There is also "microsoft frontpage" folder in the "Program Files". This is also something Microsoft did. It has a subfolder of "VERSION3.0" and a subfolder in that of "BIN". "microsoft frontpage" is also box-marked as read-only and is 0 bytes. I don't have Microsoft Frontpage and never had, what's this one for?

Sure, if that makes you feel better, but it supposed to be there.
Is it ok to hide it?
Windows has native support for scanners (and digital cameras), this allows many scanners to work without downloading additional software. I don't pretend to know why Microsoft does things the way they do
I don't have any Microsoft Office programs and never did, but I do have a scanner with my all-in-one. Why did they put it in the "Program Files" folder and not something like "System32"?
Again, it's a required component. I believe it's the "publish to web" component.
