    Can I safely delete the files in the Programs Files/Toshiba/Desktop Links folder?

    I understand if I try to delete the folder itself that it will just
    be recreated, although hopefully empty.

    I guess Toshiba drops them in there when you buy a pc hoping you will buy the full program.

    PS-I am not using any of these programs.

    If you don't use these programs, can they not be removed via the Add/Remove programs?

    They are not listed in there/

    I think they are like setup .exes are such.

    Late last night I deleted the entire folder. Going to let it set in the Trash Bin for
    a few days before I nuke it for good.

    I had done a registry search for some of them and nothing existed so I figured
    I was safe getting rid of them.
