Folders with Blue Names

  1. In my C:\Windows folder on Win XP Pro SP2, I have folder with names like $NtUninstallKB88...$. These folders' names are in the blue color. They are taking up room on my C drive.

    I know that these are compressed folders relating to the OS updates, patches, and hotfixes.

    Is it safe to delete these folders?

    If so, which ones?

    these are the dir/files used by the uninstallers; your choice to keep/remove

    I was advised that I should not delete the folders named with the following "$hf_mig$".

    Any reasons why not?
