[WIN7] Does Anyone Know What This Folder Is?

I'm running Win 7 Home Premium 64 Bit.

I don't use this PC that often, however I just noticed a file folder called "sun" (the 's' is in small case) in Documents. It was created back in August '12 and is empty.

I have no memory of what it may be, and I'm pretty sure that I'm 100% clean. Could it be something related to the OS?

I don't remember seeing that folder in my Windows 7 install. It could be a folder created by a Java install or possibly, if you use it, something to do with Virtualbox. Both are Sun products.

Java was my first thought, but since the folder is empty and I have Java 7 update 11 both the 32 and 64 bit versions, it seemed a little confusing. I don't use Virtualbox.

I have it too. It's a Java update folder. Mine has /Sun/Java/Java Update/jaureglist.xml in the folder.

Yes you can delete the folder.... Everytime i use Java that folder is created (And all associated files are in it for that session))
