Windows 10: AVG leftovers

    AVG leftovers

    Almost two months since I uninstalled this AVG antivirus using their special removal tool, then searched for leftover files and deleted them manually, did the same in the registry.
    Recently while using CCleaner, noticed there is still an AVG leftover in the installed programs list, "Visual Studio 2012 x86 Redistributables".
    Is "Microsoft Visual C++" the same, then I can remove this AVG leftover ?

    Answers will be appreciated

    Hey Motim,
    Yes, you can uninstall the VS 2012 x86 from AVG. If you do find that another program you have installed needs the VS 2012 x86, then install the MS one ... Check this out for more explanation about Visual C++ Redistributables ... Why Are There So Many Installed on My PC?

    Edit: I would NOT uninstall the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 x86
