    This hidden dir has appeared on the root of the volume on which I installed
    Vista 5744. I only found it because I changed the default Explorer setting
    to show hidden files and folders. I assume with a name like that I can
    delete it, but if that's the case, why is it made hidden so that it wouldn't
    normally be seen?

    If I had to guess, I'd say it was a reminder by one programmer to another,
    rather than something for the user to see...
