Default Can "Setup Log Files" be deleted ?

Dear Expert on Microsoft XP,
Among the list of items on the "Disc Cleanup" window there is one
called "Setup Log Files" about which the "?" says that these are
"Files created by Windows".
My qustion is:- Can "Setup Log Files" be deleted ?
Looking forward to your reply,
Regards,
Urban

1. Generally yes.
2. But there is a more clever way of doing this. Make a new
folder called /Discards. Then MOVE to /Discards any files
you want to get rid of, reboot and run as normal. If any of
these files is called for (File Not Found) you can COPY it
back where the Registry expects to find it: and if there is
no trouble you can wipe all contents of /Discards next
week or whenever it comes to mind.
