Visual C++ 2008 and 2010 x86 on 64bit

Hey guys,

I have the 64bit version of Vista and on my Add/Remove Programs list I have "Microsoft Visual C++ (x86) 2008 redistributable" and "Microsoft Visual C++ (x86) 2010 redistributable"

I was wondering if I uninstalled these and installed the x64 versions if there would be any conflicts (or just flat out stop working) for any programs that I use on my computer? I'd like to know before I go uninstalling something that could be crucial to most programs today.

Thanks, Evolve.60

Your 32-bit programs may requires 32-bit versions of the redist files to work.
