    I think that those files are for your printer and printer drivers.
    Do they bother you?

    I had this folder too but there wasn't anything inside the folder, so I deleted it.

    I believe that Xerox worked with Microsoft to integrate printer technology into Windows. Your printer manufacturer is not relevant.
    My folder is empty also, Alucard.

    I've noticed it before on my machine, & it's always been undeleteable...
    It's actually quite a mystery. Microsoft says nothing about it at all in their Knowlege Base or website.

    this was at Microsoft's Japan site, but it has since been moved or taken down. There's not mention on the US site at all.

    Phenomenon
    When Windows XP is installed, the \xerox\nwwia folder is drawn up to the systemdrive \Program Files subordinate

    Circumstance
    This operation is specification of Windows XP.

    Details

    The \xerox\nwwia folder from the XEROX Corporation way the WIA which is offered (the WindowsImage Acquisition) is prepared in order to utilize the (untranslated characters) of correspondence.
    In addition, because it is the folder which is protected by the system, it is not possible to delete.
    wow.
    we've got an enigma on our hands.

    this post is guaranteed 100% parrot-free

    I have those folders also. I wouldn't worry about it. They're not using any space.
