Windows 7: Files in User/Owner/AppData/Local

Files in User/Owner/AppData/Local

I have 200 folders in the C:/user/owner/local with names similar to {4BAD3A78-8A70-44D6-AD84-CF42571B0CD6}. All of them show 0 bytes, 0 files, 0 folders. What the heck are these?

Hello anaron

These files are safe to delete if you wish. There are many threads here as to where they come from, some say from windows live mail or messenger and others have different views but I don't remember there been a conclusive answer. The only thing we all agreed on is that the can be safely deleted if you want to however they take up no space so can be left alone.
My advise is to leave them in the recycle bin for a few days just to make sure you have no issues.

Folder in User\Name\Appdata\Local
I have a bunch of empty folders in C:\User\Username\AppData\Local that have number and letter characters. Like this {0E091B39-4B52-47D3-A112-2B4D5C09F64F} Is it OK to delete these. They date back to when I first built this system, beginning of March. Thanks
