    >So, Windows Update finally got around to upgrading my 1607 to 1709.

    Wow, that seems like quite a jump:

    Long-Term Servicing Branch (LTSB) 1607 14393.2035 8/2/2016
    Semi-Annual Channel (Targeted) 1709 16299.201 10/17/2017

    Is that you windows version, LTSB? If so I wish I had that : ) My understanding is that version gives you the most control over your pc.

    With Win 10 Pro I am on last spring's 1703 version and it seems I was able to delay going to 1709 for 365 days as they word it.

    I never did end up deleting those two folders but truth be told I have not had the opportunity to spend as much time with the new machine as I have wanted to. Maybe an hour or so every two days. I think I will eventually get around to it since until you just reminded me I really do not like having those seemingly useless 400K files just sitting there even if they are just some kind of place holders.

    So are you still brave enough with the "new" 1709 to once again delete those folders or are you going to let the dust settle a bit before diving back in to the deep end : )

    It may have been a coincidence, or the actual trigger, when Norton upgraded and I had then minor-updated 1607. After the upgrades, Windows Defender is running side by side or co-signed with Norton.

    It would seem Windows would not upgrade until Norton was uninstalled or Norton was adjusted to co-sign with Windows Defender.

    As for the Everywhere saved searches virtual folder, as soon as it began listing the first ten of the (probably) 4 million plus entries, I deleted it, again. For all I know, the undeletable data is residing somewhere in my system until the next OS upgrade.
