It might be a part of an update, which is currently installing.
If everything is installed, reboot your system. To be absolutely sure, may be reboot twice.

And if that folder is not gone by that time most likely you can delete it without hesitation.

Try to reboot first. It might be picked up during reboot.

If nothing happened after reboot - proceed with deleting.
