Windows 7: Duplicated applications installed?

Duplicated applications installed?

Hi to you all.
I'm a newbie on here and would appreciate some help please.

I've noticed in the Windows 7 Installer clean up (Pre-installed on system) that a number of apps with the same version number all appear to be duplicated...(in the case of Win Live Writer 3 times!)

The applications in question are as follows:

(All users) Win Live Mail (15.4.3502.0922)
" Win Live Messenger (15.4.3502.0922)
" Win Live Moviemaker "
" Win Live Photo Common "
" Win Live Photo Gallery "
" Win Live Writer "

Can anyone shed any light on why these are duplicates,and can i delete one of each entry?

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Not sure why they are duplicated, but I would be inclined to uninstall all of them, reboot, and then carry out a fresh install.
