I just installed XP Pro w/sp2 on my P4 PC. Did a "Clean" install (not an upgrade from another OS). Nothing else on the PC except the OS!
Did a Windows Update and it installed a LOAD of patches, security updates, other stuff, etc.
I looked in C:\Windows (with ALL files being shown (ie: hidden, system, compressed, etc.) and found the following and want to know if I can delete any or all of them??
1). In C:\Windows - there are 72 files with miscellaneous file names but all of them ending with ext = ".log", 39 of them have KBnnnnnn.log as file name.
2). In C:\Windows - there is 1 "Hidden" folder $hf_mig$ (492 files, 107 folders, 99.5MB) that contains 36 'sub' folders (names=KBnnnnnn) that are also hidden.
3). In C:\Windows - there is 1 Hidden compressed folder $MSI31Uninstall_KB893803v2$ (111 files, 1 folder, 5.30MB) that contains 102 files with names of regnnnnn. Plus some other 'dll' files.
4). In C:\Windows - there 38 (hidden, compressed) folders with names of $NtUninstallKBnnnnnn$.
5). Also in C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache\ there are 2,507 files that take up 461MB, most of them are .dll files.
What can I delete and what shud be left??
Thank you very much!
