This is a pretty trivial question, but it sort of bothers me. My B&W G3 at work has the Installer Cleanup extension in the extensions folder. I use CC, so every time I restart the computer I see the extension as the last item in the string of CPs and extensions that march across the screen at start up. My computers at home don't have that extension at start up except when I've installed something that requires a restart. So the question is, does the extension belong in the Extensions Folder? Is it a problem if it is in the Extensions Folder? Should I get it out of that Folder?

You can safely remove this file. All this does, I believe is empty the trash on boot.

It's also supposed to get rid of itself after it does it's business! Very common with Macromedia apps! Trash that bad boy!

Yeah that can sometimes get left behind if you crash or hangup during an install.

it can also be left behind if you force quit an installer to get around having to restart
