I'm pretty sure I can just delete DSS.exe on my desktop, but can I delete the huge[490MB]
backup folder and other files all in one folder named 'Deckard' on my HDD. There is no reason
to keep this, but I'm not sure if I can just delete it without causing something weird.

Any suggestions? Am I worrying needlessly?

Please download OTCleanIt.exe and save to your Desktop.
  • Connect to the Internet and double-click on the file to launch the program.
  • Click on the green CleanUp! button.
  • If you get a warning from your firewall or other security programs regarding OTCleanIt attempting to contact the Internet, please allow the connection.
  • When it has finished, OTCleanIt will ask you to reboot so it can remove itself.
-- Note: Doing this will remove any specialized tools (including this one) downloaded and used. All other programs should be kept on your machine and used on a regular basis.
