Windows 7: Is it safe to delete the contents located in Appdata/Local/Apps/2.0 ?

Is it safe to delete the contents located in Appdata/Local/Apps/2.0 ?


I was curious if I could delete the folder contents located in Appdata/Local/Apps/2.0.

The folders have some gibberish names.

And it has mostly some Google stuff located in there. Probably from the Clickonce installation.

I mean it couldn't harm my computer if I deleted those folders, right?

Backup your system with free Macrium Reflect then if you get a disastrous result on deleting the folder it will take you just minutes to restore your system!
