I have two programs in this folder , one of which is my antivirus(norton) and the other is Download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab. I ran an hijack this log about a week ago and it did not show up on the log. Ikeep a log to compare readings, this scan it showed up on the hjt log. Are these programs already installed and can be deleted from the folder?

The Norton one will be your update ActiveX,
The Flash is macromedia ActiveX control.

Both can be deleted,

However when you next update Norton it will be reinstalled, and by deleting the shockwave control will mean you will not be able to view some websites properly

Both are legitimate controls and can be safely left on your system
