What exactly are the folders in this directory for? I started a scan with Adware this morning and it has been "deep scanning" a folder within this directory for a few hours now. The folder in question holds nearly 2000 files, including some windows sreensaver exe's and even one for regedit.

Do I need to keep these folders? Or can I bin them?

I reckon that you can bin them - wait for someone else to confirm.

Cheers Vog. I'll hang on for that 2nd opinion.
