    Ok so I was looking at my add/remove programs because I need to delete some stuff on my HD to free up space. I noticed that I have several Microsoft c++, I have included a pic. Can I remove any of these ? A few are duplicate.

    I'd advise caution. Oftentimes, these packages are installed alongside games/apps because they're utilised by the aforementioned. Deleting them may cause such games/apps not to work anymore.

    If you're looking to free up space, have you tried Disk Cleanup? It's possible it may free up several GB of old Windows updates and other non-essential files.

    Understandable. What about the duplicates even the ones with the same dates. I'm assuming by your explanation that two different program might need that certain package and even though another program needs the same c++ package that it needs to have it's own ?

    Yes I have used Disk Clean up, ty. Anything else I can really do to find crap?
