Can I delete this folder?


Aug 5, 2017
I have this folder named "Security Cache" located in C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Performance\TheftProtection\SecurityCache. I want to delete it because its size is 2gb and I need to free some space. I had bad history with this folder too about 2 weeks ago it had trojans in it and I deleted it manually from there. Furthermore, this folder is invisible too, because inside the TheftProtection folder it seems empty so I have to type the SecurityCache to enter that folder but luckily HitmanPro detected trojan in it so I could find this folder location.

So, can I delete it? Is this folder familiar to you guys/could it be an important folder?
