    installation folder left behind on the desktop

    In Vista Home Basic, I installed the latest version of Adobe Reader 9.x and
    it left a shortcut and a folder on my desktop called Adobe Reader 9
    Installer. I have never seen this behavior before. Adobe Reader did
    successfully install. I thought installation files automatically went to
    download folders. Can I delete or move this folder off my desktop without
    disrupting the program? thanks, Kevin
