Solved!
My question is, can I delete these files and what's the safest way of doing so? Before I zap the c**p, should I park it onto a CDrom, and would that provide sufficient safety against me fouling up and deleting something essential? Thread Status: Not open for further replies. As long as you have this info on CD or other media, go ahead and delete the folder.
I have found two rather large cab files: Data 2.cab (C:\SWSetup\CyberDVD\Stage1\PDIR) and Data 1.cab (C:\SWSetup\CyberDVD\Stage1\PDIR). The CDs are what they contain> take a look.

ERROR The requested URL could not be retrieved The following error was encountered while trying to retrieve the URL: http://0.0.0.9/ Connection to 0.0.0.9 failed. So I could delete the lot, and not notice any problems for years. MY HP system has an "HP" folder= 676MB's, as well as the HP_RECOVERY (D partition = 3.79 Gigs used out of 6 GB. At least my HP ze5470 Laptop came with the recovery CDs.
Only the support area at the HP site or your user manual can tell you all the details about using the Recovery disk, as things can vary from model to model. But ... there's no guarantee they'll have ... The best option is to delete all but the most recent restore point.
Some of the things in Add/Remove programs as you know, are hardware drivers or software that runs devices. I have posted to your other thread about this same question with some help for using the HP support site and specific info about your model. Use the Search line at the HP site to find better info> type in something like "Uninstalling preinstalled programs", experiment with different search terms, but be sure you are looking at With the type of system you have, it's one way or the other!
On my older (2002) Pavilion, tower type HP> I can install any of the pre-installed softwares by going to the entry "HP Application Recovery" in the Programs menu list, see the They don't give you all the details!

The SWSETUP folder may just be one way to reinstall an INDIVIDUAL program, because some Recovery CDs do not work to install JUST ONE driver, or software...
It has lots of subfolders, some with names I recognise as software I use (e.g. One thing you can do with a notebook is use an external USB hard drive, or Firewire, for extra storage, so it's not a worry with ANY preinstalled software taking up That's one way, but sometimes the files are named so you can't really tell what they are...
