I have a relatively new PC with Windows 10 installed.

Why might I have iTunes & other unnamed Apple Software installed and what might I lose by uninstalling it all?

Do you own an Iphone or Ipad? If so Itunes is a good way to update and manage your I devices, Itunes is also a good way of handling and playing your media collection. If you don't have any Apple devices and use Windows to manage your media then you probably don't need Itunes.

Possibly it came installed with other crapware especially if its a branded machine.

I must have added them for some reason, best known to myself but longer not remembered.

However, I have now uninstalled the lot, using CCleaner, cleared any residue and rebooted a couple of times. So far I have not detected any consequences.
