I have no idea. BUT, you may want to run a virus scan and download/run malwarebytes just to be safe.

I'm pretty sure your computer was trying to install the .net framework.

I don't see why not. It was an installation folder.

BUT, I would first rename the folder to something like "trashthis". See if you have any problems. You shouldn't. If things are smooth for a few days, then delete it.
