You need the folder, but not the contents, I tick the 1st 3 boxes in this program to keep it clean.

ATF Cleaner

Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
Under Main choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
If you use Firefox browser
Click Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
If you use Opera browser
Click Opera at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.
For Technical Support, double-click the e-mail address located at the bottom of each menu.
This will remove all files from the items that are checked so if you have some cookies you'd like to save, please move them to a different directory first, or use CCleaner. http://img830.imageshack.us/i/cclea...

✔ Best Answer
I did some looking around Microsoft's websites and other tech websites and couldn't find an answer.

I have a total of 17 files in that folder: 9 text & 8 html, 62.8 MB total file size, all related to versions of the .Net Framework. If you're unaware, a framework is like the building blocks of an application. Using this framework, software developers can create applications and save time because some of the tools are already created. Taking a look at these files on my computer, it appears they're just log files.

I tried cleaning up temporary files in the latest version CCleaner and then the built in Disk Cleanup utility (Start > Run: cleanmgr) and neither tool cleaned up that folder.

If disk space isn't an issue, I say just ignore them. If it is an issue or you're way too curious, create a System Restore point first, then delete the files inside (not the folder itself) to the Recycle Bin. If you don't notice any system problems after a couple weeks (including a Windows Update attempt), I'd think it's safe to permanently delete them.

Apologies if I don't respond to your reply immediately. I don't check this site daily, but you're welcome to PM me as a reminder.

I periodically clean out that folder, deleting the contents as they are not needed.
