Welcome back Scottie

"Purge yours"
contains the protected files for the current user.

and "Purge All"
contains the protected files for all users.

You can safely remove them. Norton will renew the files. This feature protects all deleted files from permanent loss.

It's not weird, it's a feature Norton offers you.
It enables you to get uninstalled files back if you ever make a mistake and delete the wrong one.

You can disable the feature if you want to.

EDIT:
As there has been no reply from the original poster for more than ten days this topic is now closed.

If you are the original poster and still need assistance, please send me a PM.
