I have several folders in my program files left over from programs which I no longer have (Zone Labs,Win MX,Net Spy Protector,Symantec,Etc.). These programs were uninstalled ages ago, is it safe to delete these folders or should I leave them alone. I'm trying to tidy up my hard drive.

If you've uninstalled the programs, it should be quite safe to delete the left over files. They should have been removed by the uninstaller anyway. I would recommend emptying the recycle bin first, and then when you delete the files, leave them in the recycle bin until you are confident that their removal isn't giving a problem.
