Normally it's not wise (
) to delete stuff just because a program tells you to.
But, in this case, it may be correct.
BUT...Deleting the contents of the C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution folder is a fix for Windows Update issues.
BUT...You can't delete the entire contents of the folder without stopping the Windows Update Service
AND...This will remove your update history so the next Windows Update will take quite a while
Beyond that, I'm not sure of the consequences - so I'd suggest the advice in this topic: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/42143/how-to-safely-delete-a-file-if-you-dont-know-if-you-need-it/
