yes.. I cant imagine why no one answerd you the first time...
those are temporary folders that the security patches need to deflate the
I think that particular one is installed after you install office
more info here http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=927978
you can delete them... this is normal...
from the above site:
Security update package 927978 may create a log file. The package names the
log file KB927978.log. The package saves the log file inside a folder. The
folder has a system generated name. The folder is in the root of a system
drive. The path resembles the following:
C:\system generated name\KB927978.log.
Note In this example, C is system drive.
Although it is optional, you can remove the log file and the folder.
I dont know why you cannot gain access to them though...
I know a few tricks you might try if you really want to do it...
