Hello and thanks in advance, I have Ucheck installed on my windows 10 Dell laptop and it lists microsoft office file addin as a program installed on this laptop when in fact it is not listed in programs and features for uninstall. This laptop had office 2010 installed but has since been uninstalled, except for the validation file addin. I have tried to locate the file without succes and i am wondering if its ok to leave or what? The computer works great as is but c     ould this be a potential issue?   Thanks    PS I tried uninstalling from ucheck and got message  "this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action."

From my perspective this is definitely of the, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it," variety of situation.   If or when something untoward were to arise that's the time to take action.  Otherwise, when it comes to office add-ins that are not having any negative functional impact, let sleeping dogs lie.
