    I was wondering if it was safe to uninstall some versions of the microsoft C++ redistributable packages...

    View list below as Microsoft C++ 2008 had lots of sub-versions, is it safe to delete the lower versions

    Unless you're low on disk space, it's best to leave these as is. Some could be an update to the others, and there could be programs installed on your computer that requires/depends upon these packages. Programs that you use often or daily.
