Hi...
Sorry for the unreadable off site picture; as I received an error message when I tried to insert this image in my first post? :thumbsup:

Does anybody know what the last 3 files are and can they be deleted?

None of these are malicious. OTOH, any or all 'Downloaded Program Files' may be deleted - they will just be downloaded again the next time you visit the page that requires them.

I couldn't find any reference to the first two files, but the third appears to be Guide Values, media type identifier, an SDK or API.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
