.NET framework installation question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi

When i installed some windows updates earlier today i noticed some weird folders in my D drive while installing the. net framework updates (it had a name that i can not remember, but it consisted of extremely many numbers and letters. Inside were some folders with different four digit number names, along with some png files and such. I was wondering whether this is normal or not? and i was a bit prplexed since this was a completely fresh windows install (i formatted the drives etc.) so i have a hard time believing it's a virus...

Any suggestions highly appreciated smile.gif

    The .NET installer (and several other Microsoft update installers) hunt for another disk in the system besides the system disk to put their temporary files on.  I've even had them choose my SD card before—it was really slow!  If those folders are still there after finishing the installations and rebooting your computer, you can delete them safely! thumb.gif

I see it do that all the time, I cannot stand it.
If it needs to unpack those files, there is a temp folder for that, not my media drive.
I remember installing it on a friends computer who had a small SD card attached, it kept locking up due to it being too small.
