This occurs if you use the "Train" box on the main page of the web
interface.  The files are created in the current working directory, which I
guess for you was the startup folder.  They'll put in a more sensible place
in 1.1.  For the moment, you can simply delete them if you use the "Train"
box (it's not really of much use, since we recommend that you don't do
pretraining).  They aren't used for anything - they're just there in case
you need to recover if something goes wrong.

They don't get installed, rather they are created at runtime.
