  1. Is removing "Removed Apps" safe?


    So about a month ago, I got some virus thing, and I had to factory reset my computer due to Norton Antivirus not catching it and me not being able to delete it manually. When I did, I got some thing on my desktop called "Removed Apps" (Shown in the picture).
    I have no idea if something bad'll happen if I delete it (in fear of maybe getting the virus again), so that's why I came here. Is it safe to maybe delete it? If so how? (Because I have no idea if i'll have to do something special or whatever to delete it)
