Can I Delete HP Documentation Files

Can I delete the directory C:\Program Files\Hewlett - Packard\Documentation ?


I am using AVG antivirus and it hangs on one file preventing me from getting a

complete antivirus scan.


It hangs on C:\Program Files\Hewlett - Packard\Documentation \437363-1b

It looks like that entire HP directory is document files.  I've never accessed those

documents and can't imagine that I ever would.

Re: Can I Delete HP Documentation Files

Rusty, do you have the "Show all files" checked in the Folders Preferrences?  This would show files that are supposed to be protected if you do.  If you don't, then, open the files to see what they say.  It may be data for some of HP's programs that they furnish when the computer is new.  If you delete them, the programs may not function properly.

HP TouchPad
- 1.2 GHz; 1 GB memory; 32 GB storage; WebOS/CyanogenMod 9

HP Split 13 x2
- 1.6 Ghz; 4 GB memory; SSD 128 GB; Win 8.0

HP Phoenix ENVY 810-135qe
- i7-4770K (liquid cooled); 8 GB memory; GT 640 (4 GB), SSD (Samsung EVO 840-500 GB); 600W PSU; Win 7 Ultimate
