    I have 31 of these files listed - all rounded up to display their size as 2KB each.

    While it's possible to compress these files to save space, you could end up with problems if you don't know what each relates to and their Properties gives nothing away.

    If you want to see what additional bits you can delete to save space, run Disk Cleanup in Extended Mode and then do a defrag. http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...-extended.html
