Can someon explain these strange folder names

November 7, 2010 at 18:28:28
Specs: Windows 7, P4 socket 478 / 762
In windows explorer, in my logical drive partition D:, I see a strange folder named "636a257836f970dbe6ad4030" with two subfolders named "support" and "update"
There are actually 3 more strange folders wuth a long string of characters as a folder name "a9e75a299cb7b509273f", that contains a text document named "msxml4-KB927978-enu". Another is "d205fade3600f921d8d3ba" with two subfolders namely "amd64" and "i386". While the last folder "f1d5a3c952d3c0a5e7f0" has a text document "%temp%dd_msxml_retMSI" on it
Can someone tell me what these are? Should I rename them? Why are they in my logical partition and not in my root drive C:?

I can't for the life of me understand why people dig into things if they aren't having problems...makes no sense to me. Are you having problems with your PC?

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers

I agree with #1. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
