using windows 8.1, while removing an unwanted program using IObit Uninstaller, I noticed I have a number of microsoft visual C++ listed, some the same program with different versions, ie:
Microsoft Visual C++ 2006 Redisputable version 8.0.59193 & version 8.0.61001;
Microsoft Visual C++ 2006 Redisputable (x64);
Microsoft Visual C++ 2006 Redisputable - x64 9.0.30729.4148(x64);
all have the following information 'size, install date & version'
can I safely remove older versions where there are a number of the same program but different versions? all help and advice appreciated.
