  • What are these files that are named like "$MSI31Uninstall_KB893803v2$" that appear in the Windows directory and can they be deleted?

  • Hey Randy

    Yes they can be deleted. They are old update files and are left behind after the update.

  • Note that although these can be deleted, if you are not pressed for space, you should consider leaving them where they are. Some updates will expect the install file for a prior update to be present. The recent wave of .Net Framework security updates is one example.
