Is it safe to delete from C:\Windows\Installer?
Is the /windows/installer folder for files used during installation, and were not deleted for some reason?
Can I delete them?
(windows xp laptop)
Windows needs those files if you want to Uninstall your programs later.
While you can delete them and your program will still work, the Uninstall/Reinstall options from Add/Remove programs will not work.
Yes you can. This article may help. You will need a Microsoft utility to do so. As I understand. And, ideologically, programs, when installed, may recreate this directory. http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic109060.html
