Can I delete these files?

Hello,

I hope that someone can give me some advice on file deletion.

I’ve visiting my parents and just noticed that My Mum’s hard drive is almost full.

I’ve found that when I go into the C drive and then ‘Windows’ there are about 100 files listed in blue with very similar names to the following:

$NtUninstallkb887472$

Is it OK for me to delete all of these?

Thanks very much

These are your backup uninstall files for Windows Updates - to be used if you cannot remove them via the Add/Remove Programs route. Personally I would not remove them, but more importantly they will not make any noticeable difference to the space on the hard drive. You need more radical action - such as removing data files to CD/DVD or an external HD

Yes you can safely remove them, use this tool to do so, click here but take Sea Urchin's advice about clearing other large files if you're short of space.
