Is it safe to uinstall Microsoft visual C++?

Hi. I got several Microsoft visual C++ versions installed onto my system. You can see in the screenshot (highlighted).

>> I want to know, can I uninstall the previous version of Microsoft visual c++ like the version 2005 redistributable or other old version?

>>Will it cause any problem after uninstalling?

They are only a few Mbs total and something you installed is using them, I've got a bunch of them. Just let them be.

Hi, derekimo. You helped me so, I thought to give you rep. But when I click on rep button it says "You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to derekimo again." Why?

You have to rep 15 different people before you can rep that person again.

It's like that to keep people from abusing the rep system.

Your Thank You is enough, I appreciate you trying though.
