Generally, only the Windows operating system installs to the Windows folder. Most Microsoft applications install to the program files folder just like any other application.

Personally, I would aim to delete them if I can't find out what they are.

If you want to make sure that you're not dependent on them,as you've already suggested yourself, moving the folder into another folder is a good idea. You can wait a month to see if anything notices they're gone.

If it won't move then that means an application or Windows is preventing it and you can find out which.
