I an using Win XP, and I noticed that in the Windows root directory there are 83 very odd-looking files, for example, NtUninstallKB953839. Googling this does not come up with anything that seems to explain it. All but one have “Uninstall” in them. I’ve uninstalled programs and files before without these showing up.
I’d like to delete all these, but am loath to do so until I can find out whether that would be harmful. I can always create a restore point first, but hate to crash the system by deleting them until I know.
Anybody know what the hell these are, and if they can safely be deleted?
