Hi, just trying to clear some space on my machine and realised that there are a lot of Microsoft Visual C++ things in my program files. Do I need them all or just the latest? I know this is probably a daft question but we've all got to learn sometime, thanks.

I believe they are different versions which some earlier programs may need to run correctly.

Yes leave on, Visual basic and other programs use them and they may not work, I think if you uninstall, windows will simply install again with an update.

OK,I will leave them alone, thanks.
