  1. Unknown programs in apps and features


    I have two programs in the apps and features list and I don't know what they are.

    I think they were installed from my old pc when I transferred to my new one as they have an old date.

    One is called CR and this one is 313mb in size.

    The other one is called @bios and is 2.33 in size.

    I don't want to delete if they are necessary but I don't know how to find out.

    Help anyone please?

    :)

  2. Have a black entry in add and remove programs

    Hi,

    Try to check the program and features list and see if there is any unknown application then that might be related to that unknown application icon. For opening program and features window you may refer to the steps provided below.

    • Press Windows key + R.
    • Type appwiz.cpl in the run box.
    • This will open program and features window.
    • Try to search for that application and see if you could uninstall it.

    Do keep us updated.

    Regards,

    Unknown Microsoft Programs in Apps & Features

    When doing a bit of clean-up in Apps & Features, I sorted the list alphabetically and as I scrolled down I noticed a LOT of programs from Microsoft with no names (see below). Want to make sure this isn't some sort of virus or malware that slid thru the cracks.
    Thanks!
