I don't understand much of what you typed but don't search the whole computer. Open Widows Explorer, click on a folder and search that specific folder. Use the search field in the upper right corner.

It depends on where these files and folders are as to whether you should delete them or not. Many, many files and folders have the number 4 in them.

Can you provide some examples of ones you want to delete (full path please)?
