I have several files in my download folder.  Some are programs [applications?] which I downloaded and then installed.  For example RegVac and A1 setup are in there when I
downloaded them.  Firefox Setup is in there as well.

Will these be affected if I delete them from the Downloads folder?

It should be OK to delete them.  When you download things from the internet, they may end up there, so make sure there is nothing there that you would want.

I do a regular 'clean-up' of my downloads. Any programs and utilities I have downloaded and installed I burn to a CD before removing them from the download folder. I 'update'
the CD so I have all my programs and fave utilities in backup form.
