Windows 7: Duplicate installations? Are any of them safe to uninstall?

Duplicate installations? Are any of them safe to uninstall?



I think a lot of these are the same thing. Are any of them safe to uninstall or is this normal?

Thanks.

Hello Monkeys, and welcome to Seven Forums.

No, it wouldn't be safe to uninstall it. While it is a bug to have the uninstall entries listed twice, it would uninstall the program and remove both entries if you click on either entry to uninstall it.

As a workaround, you can use either option in the tutorial below to see if you may be able to "remove" only the duplicate uninstall entry without uninstalling the program itself.

Programs and Features - Remove Uninstall Entry - Vista Forums

Hope this helps,
Shawn
