Hi, I was wondering is it safe to delete the driver files installed in the program folders such as USB, GPU, and sound drivers? I know you can delete the downloaded folder package which you need to begin installing them, but can you delete the folders it creates afterwards?

No I'm talking about the folders created after they're done installing. I know you can delete the download files to install them with.

Hi, do not delete anything in c:\program files, windows or system32: your looking for trouble by doing so
