Strange folders in XP

  roi 00:32 15 Feb 04

I'm running Windows XP. I've noticed in my C-drive a folder called KPCMS. It contains lots of .tmp files, and two sub-folders: CMSCP and DPCDB. I can't find out anything about CMSCP, which contains only one file: cp01, created in 1995. DPCDB seems to be caching a lot of my .doc files, as well as some others. DPCDB could stand for Distributed Characteristics and Performance Database, but I run into the sand trying to find out more. KPCMS could be Kodak Precision Color Management System, but I've no idea why they are on my PC. Any ideas, or am I being paranoid?

I didn't have it, but your link leads me to think that some OCR or scanning software may have been responsible for the creation of the folders and their contents. tks.

I've deleted the folders, with no ill effects. I had worried they might have been similar to 'xerox'!
