    (I am sorry, but I am not certain if this should be in the software section....)

    I find this list of these entries on my computer, Windows 7 ultim View attachment 7978

    The latest entry (the one in the title) appeared today by itself, according to the "Advanced Uninstaller".
    Are these entries something to worry about?
    I have been googling them for a while, but could really find an answer...

    Thanks

    These are libraries required by other applications on your system, the fact that they are installed is nothing to worry about. If you remove them, you might discover that some applications doesn't work anymore.

    As for when they were installed, that might have happened as part of another installation procedure, such as when you installed a game or any other application.
