Is it safe to delete "amd64" files from my Windows folder? My machine is a Dell using an Intel Processor, so why would I need AMD files?
If they are 'protected' how can I delete batches of them?
I am using Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

Where the directory resides is important. You'll find files with these names in many locations. If they subtend a directory containing some string of fairly meaningless hexidecimal symbols, e.g., 12c8b0aaa7c55472e285280a, the subtending files and directories are probably garbage left over from an installation routine that was sloppily written.
First rename the aforementioned top level directory and run your computer for a couple days. If nothing seems amiss, then you're fairly safe deleting them. If they are locked, then you'll need to do some research on how to unlock them.
