Unknown entries

Hi folks,I'm getting rid of some old programs and files that are no longer used using my uninstaller.There are 2 entries that I haven't got a clue about.One is called "Branding" with the uninstall string "BrandCleanInstallStubs" and the other is "PCHealth".The installer is unknown for both and as far as I'm aware they are never used.Does anyone know what they are and if I can get rid of them?Cheers.

Do not deelete PChealth it is part on the windows System Info click here

These types of entries are ones where the uninstaller for the program is calling a common Windows file, with a command line parameter, to perform the uninstall for the program.
When edit strings do not contain path information it simply means that Windows already knows where to look for these files

Not so sure about Branding - I think it has something to do with advertising, Branding as in Marketing. I think it would be perfectly safe to get rid of this one.
