I took a chance.

I created a restore point, deleted those folders again, and rebooted.

No issues.

I uninstalled Oracle java on my desktop. After doing so, I noticed

After that, my desktop would not reboot stating there was either a
hardware or software problem. Actually had to use the restore point
from before uninstalling Oracle java. I did all this yesterday on a
spare desktop with no issue.

Did you reboot after doing the uninstall & before removing the folders?

What's in those directories?

I wonder if Java had a pending update that caused a problem?
