Have a few of these type files $NtUninstallXXXXXXX$ and a whole potful of them on my laptop.  Should I leave them alone or can they be removed?

 

Had run the AVG tuneup and it found over 1000 registry problems [I am leaving it alone based on BC suggestions in existing posts] and it also found well over 1000 un-necessary junk files. 

 

I made a screen scan so that I can see all the files it identified, and although I might find them manually, [AVG tuneup dumps the found problems right back into your computer if you do not buy their product immediately], I do not know if I should just leave them alone.

 

Both computers run just fine and fast, until I installed AVG, which did find a few trojans and a few tracking cookies..not a big deal.  I recognize that the AVG scan function is additive to the overall process which thus slows it down.  MALWAREBYTES takes care of the cookies but apparently not trojans.  I do not know if free software exists that does the same as AVG tuneup [to find the junk files], or if it can be done manually.

 

Natually, any help is appreciated.

Those are the folders of files needed to uninstall the related Windows update hotfixes.  Check on any of the corresponding
update 'hotfixes'. CHeck on any at the corresponding http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=kb;en-us;xxxxxx page. If you are
happy that you will not want to uninstall the fix, just delete the folder concerned
