I've read I can delete this folder in my C:\ drive. I've also read I can't.
I have MS Office 2007 installed. I have the CD.
It takes up over half a gig of space.
Is it safe to delete, and if so what's the best way?
Thanks :)

This is the cache for if you need to repair or add extra features to Office that you haven't installed. If you delete it and the machine needs files from it, it'll just ask for the CD. You can delete it if you wish.

So I can just send it to the recycle bin and delete it? I read somewhere it could make things unstable if I do, hence my hesitation.

your fine removing it. It is only there as a convenience to make installing office features easier. If it's there or not has no bearing on system stability.
