    Well.. you could create a shortcut to your Fonts folder to avoid that, but that’s besides the point.

    Your right that this should be moved into it's own folder if for nothing else but tidiness sake.

    These folders aren't there anymore in Vista! I haven't found them in Windows nor System32.

    Most people won't notice this as they won't have view hidden files turned on (most visitors to this site probably are not most people).

    However I agree that they should be in a different folder because they are a pain if you do have view hidden folders turned on.

    at least IE7 updates are stored in their own folder [C]

    Can you tell me if I can delete those folders like Jamie's without any harm or is there a way to find all updates downloaded n burn them on CD/DVD.

    P.S. Search/ *enu.exe <- didnt find anything ^^

    Thx

    The only negative side effect from deleting those folders is that you will no longer be able to uninstall the relevant updates. Other than that Windows will continue to work as it did.
