MSOCache Files?

I'm noticing that the MSOCache files under the All Users folder on my c: drive is taking up 528MB of space. These MSOCache files are named with long numeric titles. Can these be eliminated? Are they necessary?

Unless you are very low on space, I would leave them be

The Local Install Source feature is installed so that you do not have to insert the CD during the following Setup operations:
Detect and Repair
Demand Install
Maintenance Mode Setup
Installation of service packs and patches
If you want to remove the Msocache folder, you can do this during Office Setup, or after Office has been installed. Removing these files will save approximately 270 megabytes (MB) of hard disk space. After you remove the Msocache folder, you may have to provide the installation media to complete the Setup operations that are listed earlier.

I wouldn't say they are unnecessary, but one could do without them if they have the original media. With the small amount of space they take up, there isn't much advantage in removing them. A Guy
