These are temporary files Windows Setup uses while upgrading from a previous
version of windows. The installer is supposed to remove these files when
setup completes.

They can be deleted safely.

In Windows Vista RC1, you can delete these files using the disk cleanup
wizard.

- Click start
- Type: clean
- Click Disk Cleanup

You will need to chose the option for files on the entire computer.
