Re: Upgraded from XP to Windows Vista Ultimate
If there's nothing in it you want, then yes it is safe to delete.
As to the shutdown issue, there is more than likely a device driver that is
causing the issue. It's not terminating properly. I would check with
component manufacturers for possible updates (not Windows Update, but the
maker of the hardware).
