Before some versions had to be uninstall from "Control Panel" => "Programs & Features", after a new update, therefore you had to manually uninstall those old ones.
Since quite a while now the new ones install, updating olders ones.
You can safely uninstall all previous versions and keep the latest you got installed.
The only things are left in registry, all the entries of previous versions installed.
