   .GID files are help index files. They include word lists for the
   matching help file.
   
   Yes they're safe to remove, but when you access the help file next
   time, WINHLP32 will re-build the .GID file. Also, some Win32 programs
   require the .GID file be present. To re-build a deleted .GID file,
   open the help file from Explorer.
