    A 64-Bit Windows can run 32-Bit programs.
    When you install a 32-Bit program, it is installed into "C:\Program Files (x86)" instead of "C:\Program Files".
    The "C:\Program Files" folder is reserved for 64-Bit programs.
    Do not delete this system folder.

    TrustedInstaller is the "User Account Control" profile (UAC, the system that prompt you when you want to run a program that needs elevated privileges; when you run "as admin", for example).
    Everything in your system that is managed by TrustedInstaller shouldn't be deleted because it is a part of Windows.

    Furthermore, native Windows files into "Program Files" and "Program Files (x86)" are Hard Links of Windows components, stored into "C:\Windows\WinSxS". That means that deleting them WON'T free any disk space. So, keep these folders as they are.

    for future reference, the above red bold part was the important part. There are many 4th generation boards, the one you have is important to help you. Seems Tito found your drivers.
