I've looked at my hard drive and noticed weird file names such as {000C8F14-1655-4337-A279-7EFC7C559B02} and {0FBCA70D-7AB1-40BE-8639-8D27E4A13888} I dont know what these are but they only take about 30KB each and there is 71 of them! D:

Please tell me what they are and if it is safe to remove them.

 

Thanks,

I don't know what those are you need to show their location but if you want a little tip on Windows 8 if you create a new folder on your desktop and name it

 

GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C} you get loads of extra features that aren't documented.
