Re: Are these safe to throw out?

  1. Delete them all but don't empty the trash can. If something don't work,
    restore associated files from trash. After time goes by and nothing is
    needed, empty trash.

    thanks Banana! But isn't the trash emptied automatically when you restart
    the computer?

    Idiot. Understand what the files are before telling anyone to trash system
    files.

    No the trash can is not emptied when you restart windows. Right click on the
    trash can icon on the desktop and select 'properties' you will be able to
    allocate how much space you can allocate to each drive for the trash can
