    Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributabale

    Why do I have 19 versions of this program running on my computer (Win 7 Home x64)? Can all but the latest version be removed?

    The empty explanation:-

    Because the OS, maybe some hardware, and a bunch of your software [esp games] installed them--times 2 if you have Win x64.

    Don't uninstall them unless you're prepared for annoying troubleshooting when random programs stop working. They're doing no harm, I have 16 versions in my Win10AU atm, they invite me round for block parties at the weekend
