How to remove a program of a foreign language

Recommended Posts

Somehow a program Visual C ++ 2012 Redistributable (x86) is running on my computer in what seems to be Russian which I do not understand. How can I use CCCleaner to remove it?

g'day @Semaj anf welcome,

you can of course uninstall that if you wish, but you run the risk of one of your other installed programs not working afterwards.

those C++ libraries are installed when loading other programs, for example, AVG and Office will load their required versions, so your Russian one would have been loaded in a similar manner.

go to Control Panel, Programs & Features, and sort the list by Installed On, now your C++ will be paired with other software installed at the same time and that may give you a glue as to why the C++ software was installed.

and while you're there, you can remove it if you still want.
