Microsoft C++++ multiple programs, do I need them

Microsoft C++++ etc appears on my program list no less than six times.

Do I need all of these or can I safely delete some and if so, which ones?

Yes, NEVER remove a version!

They install side by side in the WinSxS folder and the application picks the version it needs.

I agree, just have to ignore them and let the monthly updates for them install as well. Just leave well alone !!

Thanks to all of you, I will leave them alone, I'm sorry for my late reply, I've been away with 89yr old mother with dementia.
