Hey all,
Question regarding some very peculiar folders. So I was digging around my dated computer and went to My Comuter>C Drive>WINDOWS and found a lot of folders (plain) with names all beginning and ending with $ and within that was "NTUninstall." Here's a sample: $MSI31Uninstall_KB893803v2$

Within these files are many more and from what I noticed all had "Uninstall" folders in them. I hope I'm not waisting anyones time but since I've had to re-install Windows because of problems I was concerned. Thanks for your help in advance.

The $MSI31Uninstall_KB893803v2$ folder for example stores the uninstall information for the "Windows Installer Hotfix"
So you donīt have to worry about them.
