I was deciding to do a little clean up on my computer and I came across some C++ 2008 Redistributable with different versions installed on different dates and MSXML 4.0 SP2 and SP3.. What I want to know is if it is safe to delete them since it was the windows update that installed them onto my computer.

You really need to be careful here. Research into why these are here is necessary, many of these are used simultaneously, and I do not know why you would want to do this. What is your objective???

Take a look at this article on MSXML.


Read this whole thread on C** redistributables.

I see. Thank you and I will be sure to read the whole thread on the C++ redistributables. I was lucky I asked before acting upon myself and deleting them. My objective was to safe a few space but like Sheng Jiang said on the thread.... The amount of time you spend on finding the dependency would most likely not worth the few megabytes you may save.
