R these duplicates?

by caktus / March 2, 2015 6:16 AM PST

Howdy folks. I am using a Gateway DX4870 64-bit machine with a 1TB HDD, 6 GB Mem and Windows 8.1 64-bit OS. I am also using Trend Micro Titanium . All Critical and AV definitions etc. are up to date and full scans do not indicate any malware.

While running CCleaner v. 5.02.5101 (64-bit) I noticed what seem to be duplicate or superseded program installations. They do not seem to be causing any problems, but I am wondering it if would be safe, or even necessary, to uninstall any of them?

Could someone please let me know weather I should keep these apparent duplicates? BTW, They seem to be a bit easier to read Copied and Pasted into Notepad.

Thank you for any help you can send my way. Best wishes, Charlie

same versions and dates are different sizes

so that's odd, but since they take up such small space, I'd not worry about it unless they are virused.
