Mystery program: TC

by lobo119 / March 24, 2013 6:33 AM PDT

I am deleting unused programs on my computer. Listed is one called TC which is 2070 MB. Support info only says it is version 1.00.000. I can't find anything in my programs folder called TC.

Google search hasn't found anything comparable (there is something called Total Commander but it's much smaller).

Does anyone know what it is and if I can delete it safely?

There's a Turbo C compiler

TC could possibly stand for the Turbo C compiler for programming. By deleting I assume you're using the Programs and Features applet of the Control Panel since manually deleting folders is a recipe for problems.

First I see you're using XP, so make that the Add/Remove Programs applet. The other thing is that with the size and inexpensive nature of hard drives these days, it's really not worth the time and effort it takes to manage disk space. I just bought a 1 TB drive for $60 - that's 1000 GB.

Yes, I use the Add/Remove Programs applet. Time isn't really a factor ... I have time.
