Can I delete unused language folders from C:\BOOT in Windows 7?

Henk January 6, 2011

Space on my relatively small SSD system drive is precious. I keep trimming where I can. The C:\BOOT folder has 24 subfolders for 24 different languages, together 2.4 Mb. I want to delete them all except the one for English (my system language). Is it safe to do this?

    Open Start Menu and type 'LPKSETUP' in the search box, press Enter.
    This will open Install or uninstall display languages window where you need to click Next.
    Now select the second option that is Uninstall display languages.
    Now mark or select the check box infront of the Language pack that you want to remove from your computer and click Next.
    Once finished, you will get a message showing Uninstall completed, and you are done. Close this window and better restart the system
