1. Softsetup is the folder containing all the drivers and softwares -Yes you can back it upp and remove

2. HP folder inside Programes Files is where the HP softwares (trial wares and crap wares) installed, If you don't need any of those crapwares, you have to uninstall them before removing the folder. uninstall the unnecessary softwares.
