Windows 7: Is there any duplication here?

Is there any duplication here?

Whilst checking something in Control Panel>Programs & Features I noticed rather a lot of entries for Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable, see attached list. Can anyone can tell me whether there is any duplication here and therefore if there are any entries it is safe to remove? My OS is Windows 7 Professional 64-bit.

It would be best to leave all of these items alone. While it may be safe to delete some of them making this determination is not simple. In any event the disk space consumed is trivial. The x86 entries are necessary for some 32 bit applications.

Ok. I'll leave well alone. Thanks for the reply.
