File in Windows\System32
I have 2 files in the windows\system32 folder. On is:

7B296FB0-376B-497e-B012-9C450E1B7327-2P-1.C7483456-A289-439d-8115-601632D005A0
The other one is similar.
Can I delete these files? Because of the length of the files I'm only able
to see 2 column of files in the system32 folder.
It make navigation difficult.

Thanks,
James

NO These are Windows Vista validaton update files. They will not be read
by programs such as Ad-Aware because they are encrypted for protection of
your personal information.

Re: File in Windows\System32
Just wondered. I wish they weren't so long of file names, though

Thanks,
James

Thanks. How do you know that? With the HD littered with dozens and
dozens of these cryptic filenames, is there a way to determine what
they are for, which are essential and which can be safely deleted?

Re: File in Windows\System32
I guess one must delete them to find out if they're needed.
