Long name directories

Are the directories with long alpha numeric file names that seem to turn up after windows update OK to delete?

Where are they located?

If in temp folder then yes you can delete them.

By root do you mean your C:\ folder? I would guess it relates to WinXP SP2 Beta, have you installed this? I haven't so con't confirm this.

If the SP2 folder is unreadable I suspect you can't delete it anyway.
