I think that is actually a folder that holds temporary files for windows installer msi packages. I woulnd't recommend deleting it.

It's not a race, unless it is a race.

yea, even if it is hidden, windows can find it. why do you not want to see it anyway?

config.msi is a folder used by adobe products. it caches the files there while they expand from the loading program, then it moves the needed conponents to another location and installs from there. You can delete the folder, but it will come back.

Good luck
