Why are you so eager to delete Program Files if you do not know how they work?

Fluidmotion, would you like to make a bet with me? I'll bet €/$/ 100 (choose your currency) that after you have deleted some stuff you think is unnecessary in Program Files (or other system folders), you will be back here within 48 hours with a new thread asking help, starting with "I deleted some files and folders from my system folders and now this and that application is no longer working...".

Please do not manually delete anything from Program Folders. If you need to free space, use Control Panel > Programs and Features to uninstall unwanted applications. If the application is correctly coded it will then remove associated folders from Program Files itself. You can also use Revo uninstaller to remove unwanted applications, it is known to better job regarding removing unnecessary folders after an application is undeleted. Revo free download: Download Revo Uninstaller Freeware

Deleteing anything directly from that folder is a really bad idea and I dont think we should give you any help to screw your system up.

You have been given good advice, do not delete anything from the 'Program Files' folder.

Your computer will likely become unusable.

Unbelievable how some people insist to screw their system up. Please listen to what the guys say. If you want to get rid of programs, uninstall them. That will automatically delete the progerm folders.

Some programs don't. But delete them manually only if you know what to do.

If you use the Revo uninsyaller, they will be deleted.
