If these are the orginal install or any zipped pgms. and such, nothing will happen to them. That's thier storage folder for lack of a better term. You can, if you have CD burner, burn to blank CD and upon done leave the "session open" so the CD can be used until filled. You can also run the verify part of CD burn to be sure its a good burn. You can then delete the files or pgms. in the folder and regain the spsce. The same can be done for similar files or pgms. elsewhere *provided* they're not actually used anymore.
Hi. I have Windows XP Home Edition and use IE6. Question, after I download a program, I throw a lot of things into Unused Desktop Shortcuts. Some are applications and some are Windows Installer Package. Bottom line is that they take up a lot of space on my hard drive, the largest being the latest version of Adobe Reader which is closed to 22,000 KB and is an application. And another is Windows Defender which is a Windows Installer Package and is 5000+ KB.
What would happen if I deleted all of these? How would it affect the program that I downloaded?
Thanks for any help you can give me.
