In my Windows 7 'C' drive there are two folders:
$WINDOWS.~BT
$Windows.~WS

In both folders the word 'Panther' appears.
Is it safe to delete them?

Those files/folders are where Windows 10 upgrade downloads to before installing.

Deleting them usually wont do any harm, but they may still reappear ( at least till the end of July) If W10 again tried to download.

I will delete them, this Dell does not support Windows 10, driver issues.

If ccleaner is installed go to tools/startup/scheduled tasks.

Disable the gfx entries these belong to the Win10 update. I did this on the flatmate's PC. Since she doesn't want Win10. It hasn't been nagging or telling me to get Win10 since
