I think they're expendable installation leftovers. Create a "TestDel" on C. Move all those into the TestDel directory, remembering where they were originally. If nothing "complains" for a month or so, you can safely delete them or store 'em on some external media.

Yo were correct. After searching some more, I found they were left overs just like you said. One reading said the .NET updates will do this sometimes. Put them on external and have had no issues to date. Thanks Roland.
