Do I Need This?

I have no idea how this got onto my month old HP computer; I must have
downloaded something which uses it. It seems I have a folder and subfolders
equaling about 29 MB, called PYTHON 22. The subfolders are "DLLs," "Lib,"
"libs," "Scripts," and, "td." I am not a programmer, so I'm wondering if I
can safely remove this.

Loaded by HP to run their Python scripts. You need if and only if you run
at least one of them either directly or indirectly. Since I considered the
preloading a bonus, I never tried renaming the directly to find out. There
may be a page at python.com that explains more.

I think you meant python.org.
