\\ EDIT : Disregard - Explorer was having issues populating folders.

I have two computers and one just had a new install of Windows 7 Professional. I was running my scripts to strip out the System and start laying down my personal build when I noticed there was no \Installer directory in the Windows folder on the fresh install. My older system has an Installer folder with Googlebytes of dead space. I learned long ago : No Touchy, but getting suspicious at the requirement of this folder now.

Does anyone know the reason for this?
