Solved Directories without a known origin, can I delete them?

March 3, 2013 at 14:14:20
Specs: Windows 7 Home Premium Sp1 (32bit), Intel 1.60Ghz / 2 GB
I have a number of empty directories sitting around my computer (Win 7 x32) generally within the \Appdata directories. I don't know what they are. I don't know if I need to keep them. They look like this, with infinite variations of letters and numbers:

{0F77699F-7CE5-4DA0-8C49-A1FAABF1A0BB}

Any idea what they are? I hate having things around that I don't need. No malware inspection seems to think that they're bad. But still.. can I get rid of them?

Thanks!

I use these on every comp I work on, what's left I assume is needed.

Run Wise Disk Cleaner ( Run the 1st three tabs, left to right. I use default settings, leave boxes that are unchecked, unchecked ) Reboot when finished.

Run Wise Registry Cleaner ( Only use Registry Cleaner & with default settings. Don't use System Tuneup, that is for Experts, you really have to know what you are doing ) Reboot when finished.

Run TFC

Please double-click TFC.exe to run it. (Note: If you are running on Vista/Windows 7, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator).
It will close all programs when run, so make sure you have saved all your work before you begin.
Click the Start button to begin the process. Depending on how often you clean temp files, execution time should be anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or two. Let it run uninterrupted to completion.
Once it's finished it should reboot your machine. If it does not, please manually reboot the machine yourself to ensure a complete clean.
