  1. programs & features


    There are several programs on my laptop that seem like they might be unnecessary but I'm not sure. For instance, there are 2 programs called Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 Redistributable - Version 11.0.61030.0. They were both installed on the same date in 2018 - but one says (x64) & is 20.5 MB and the other says (x86) & is 17.3 MB. I'm running Windows 10 on a Toshiba Satellite w/64-bit OS & x64- based processor. My laptop's memory seems to fill all the way up at least once a month and I don't know why. I have no idea if one has anything to do with the other, but any help or advice anyone can give a totally clueless person would be very much appreciated. Thank you all in advance.

    :)

  2. Why did the startup window get cleared?

    I didn't missed any step, the list was gone and gone , even after using lot of programs the programs were not listed in that list.
