Windows 7: Looking for information on certain folders in my system drive

Looking for information on certain folders in my system drive

C:\MSOCache
C:\PSFONTS
C:\RECYCLER

These are the folders that I've noticed recently on my system partition while going through some maintenance. I just like to keep track of things and my folders organized. So a couple of questions regarding these: what do they do ? what creates them ? can I delete them ? Thank you for your time.

Hello,

MSOCache - This is a local install source for Microsoft Office - Local Install Source (Msocache)

PSFONTS - Apparently these are postscript fonts - Probably for a printer - Troubleshoot font problems | Windows

RECYCLER - Its the recycle bin folder- What is C:\$Recycle.Bin and Can I Delete It? Vista - Microsoft Answers

Do not delete them. The people who have a default policy of deleting things they don't recognize are often on here asking for help in reinstalling Windows because they've messed something up.

Agreed. They are essential folders.

Thank you for the replies. I asked because I didn't remember seeing them there before. Guess that's solved then.
