  1. Well basically my statement is based on my question in my topic…


    And I have these program file folders, and I want to delete them but I'm not sure if they are important:

    Program Files Folders - Xing, Windows, OfficeUpdate11, MSN

    I was wondering what to do with these folder.

    Xing – has an AudioCatalyst folder with an AudioCatalyst configuration settings, and install notepad. (I think my bro installed this, I don’t want it especially if it is spyware.)

    Windows – It’s freaking empty.

    OfficeUpdate11 – I googled once, and ppl said don’t delete?

    MSN – Basically it installs MSN Explorer, but I use Mozilla and Windows Internet. Should I delete it? I don’t wanna use more than 3 explorers.

    Well, I can tell you right now NOT TO DELETE THE WINDOWS FILE! It is not empty, windows files are merely hidden. Msn also contains msn messenger probably but if it doesnt you can delete it. I have no idea what the hell Xing is. As for office update, keep this... It makes sure your microsoft office is up to date.

    Some stuff like MSN Explorer can be removed from Add/Remove programs-> Add/Remove Windows Components.

    BTW, AudioCatalyst is a cd to mp3 ripper program, free of spyware ( I use it as well ;))
