You should be fine, but if you want you can run SFC to check the integrity of your system files.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

I believe so, my setup is a little more convuluted, I also have a Program Files (x86) due to 64 bit compatibility. and a folder called Nvidia because I slipstreamed my Graphic drivers into the install, there is also a hidden folder called ProgramData but that cannot be seen on default settings.

If you want to see all folders, you have to enable the hidden files and folders in Explorer > Organize > Folder and Search options > View tab.
