Why not?

If there is nothing else on the machine that is HP related, why not?

Files in Temp folders can be deleted anyway. That's what they are, temp. Software creators are very lax in cleaning out the guff they put in Temp folders, and so we have to do it for them.

I'm not sure what the problem is.

Just deleted the whole folder, and no adverse reactions. Dumped it completely, no repecussions. Old desktop running smoothly. Thanks for the advice.
