I might have misapprehended the situation. If so, please edit the question title.

At some point a directory called f83db84ff30a71d92e has been left in my C:\ folder. It contains a bunch of directories whose names are numbers between 1000 and 3000, a few files and a setup.exe. The setup turns out to be an installer for .NET 4.

I don't like unnecessary folders littering my disk root. Can I delete it?

Yes, it is safe to delete the folder.

You may have to take ownership of the files and change the permissions to allow you to delete the files and folder.
