    Extra files displayed?


    So, when I open up c drive, there are a bunch of files that are there that I don't know why they are there. Opening one of the ELUA txt files looks like I installed c++ redistributible at some point and maybe this is where it decided to put all the files? I don't know. None of this appears on any of my other machines. Can I delete them? I can't honestly say what I might have installed that would require this. I vaguely do remember something...

    Often it's steam games that dump eulas and re-distributables like this. Do you have steam installed on C:?

    Sorry. Should've stated that this is on my laptop. There is only the c drive.

    It's not really that big a deal. I'm just anal about such things.

    Instead of deleting them, move them to a backup folder for awhile. If no problems then delete the folder and files.

    Thanks. That's what I've done. We'll see what happens...
