    Is it safe to delete the folders with XP SP1 uninstall info?
    I have 33 folders all named $NTUninstallQ******$
    When I view the folders in explorer they are slightly dimmed...

    Also, they are slightly dimmed because that's how Windows tells you they have the attribute "hidden".

    Besides the "$NTUninstallQ123456$" folders, which you can delete, you will also notice several "Q123456.log" files, which you can also delete.:)
