I need help solving a mystery. On October 1, 2016 Oracle VM Virtual Box, version 4.3.12 was installed on my Windows 10 PC. I just noticed it today, December 8, 2016. It takes up 80.5 Mb of space. I have plenty of storage. So, that's not the problem. The problem is that I don't believe I downloaded and installed it, and I have no idea what it's doing on my PC. What function(s) is it performing? How can I find out? I want to uninstall it, but not if that will ruin my computer's operations. Only one other person has access to my PC, ( a family member ), and that is only as a "guest" account. I want to know whether or not they may have installed this, and if so, why? I don't want to ask them, ( obviously ). That's why I'm asking for your help here. Thank you very much.....  aviation1972

Oracle VM Virtual Box allows you to install and run more than one operating system from within working operating system. Maybe Oracle VM Virtual Box installed with one of the programs you have installed can you uninstall it from Control Panel --> Programs and Features.
