I recently installed .net 3.5, and during installation I was notified that certain files would be placed on my storage partition (D:). There are now two folders in D:, as pictured. It appears these are setup files, but I'm not certain. Can someone please let me know if they are, and if they can be safely deleted?

Those are temp extraction folders. You can safely delete them.

I see this quite often the installer simply failed to cleanup after itself for any number of reasons.

It is normal. One of those directories is caused by KB954550-v7 within the dotNET 3.5 installer. They are safe to delete.

For an example on how to find and delete delete them with a batch script, download Kurt_Aust's Config_XP-64_date.7z file and look within Run1_XP-64.bat.
