Windows 7: Local Disk Is Full Of Unknown Files!!!

06 Jul 2010   #1

Local Disk Is Full Of Unknown Files!!!

I just noticed all these files on my E:\ I am almost certain I can remove the EULA which I believe is "End User Licence Agreement" silly text file but I am uncertain about the rest. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thx in advance.

Windows 7 Enterprise (x64); Windows Server 2008 R2 (x64)

I would say it is safe to delete all in the red box.
