So these files are safe and they are not bgus or anything like that?

I think the S3 drivers are generic, and at installation time the operator has to select the correct ones for their particular card. Certainly no need to worry, the files are small and at the worst are useless. ........... Removal might give infinitesimal benefit against a real risk of trouble if they are used!
