Hi there is a directory on my laptop's C: called ".swt." May I safely delete it or will doing so mess up something. Thanks for your feed back.

RE: Directory on C: drive called ".swt"

Do you use the Eclipse IDE?

That extension is mentioned as being related to that IDE:

Not sure if it's related or not, since you say it's a directory.

Discussion about similar in this forum thread seems to point to the same thing, possibly (or else a virus infection):

Thanks for your reply. Based on the second link in your post I deleted the directory. I have not noticed any haywire stuff as a result, yet. Thanks; great to see you are a believer. Thanks again.

RE: Directory on C: drive called ".swt"

Did you reboot after deletion? That's where you would normally get an error if the registry was referencing that folder or a program needed it.

I did end up rebooting eventually, but didn't encounter any problems.
