When I go to the "Install/Uninstall" programs, there are quite a few of these listed. Should all of them be there? Is this slowing my computer?

Thank you!

The runtime is required by applications which have been designed using C++ libraries and in this case you will need these packages installed. You will notice that if you try to remove them, some applications installed on your computer will cease to function. These are simple DLL libraries and they do not have an impact on the performance of your computer, so you'd better keep them.
