1394 Connection & Scansoft FTP

I have noticed just recently that I have acquired a new connection in my Network Connections folder called 1394 Connection and a 1394 Adapter (connected and firewalled). Plus a new folder click here in My Network places.

I don't know where they came from, except that I recently had to download an update for Microsoft Framework.Net (Version 1.1) so that I could use the new Catalyst drivers for my ATI Radeon graphics card.

These new items don't seem to affect my operation, but if I don't need them I would like to delete them. Does anyone know if these two items are connected and if it is safe to delete them?

Thanks

1394 is your Firewire connection

Scansoft FTP is likely the FTP program that Scansoft supply with Paperport - so it's to do with your scanner, and nothing to do with the FireWire connection.

Thanks guys, I figured out just after posting that the 1394 connection was Firewire - I had forgotten that I installed a PCI card with USB2 and Firewire outputs a couple of weeks back.

I thinkk the Scansoft folder may have come from their site when I was searching for Omnipage OCR updates.

Guess I'll just leave them be.
