Building on a downstream prior posting about deleting extraneous update/install files and folders that have been "left behind" (Okay To Delete Update Files), I thought I would ask a similar question about two folders I see marked ie8 and ie8update, respectively - that are just sitting at the top level of my C:\ drive. Since these are obviously folders somehow associated with Internet Explorer 8, but which do not appear to link directly to the IE8 program, which resides in the Program Files directory - is it probably okay to delete these files/folders as well? They look to be program and registry install updates of some kind.
Okay, it appears as though the Folders are in both the C:\ level and \Windows level directory. Not sure how to account for that, but where my wife and her computer are concerned - most anything is possible.
So, is "go" or "no-go" to delete these Folders, in either or both locations? I'm sensing the answer is "go".
