I recently found "Python-22" on my computer (recent purchase - uses Win-XP) It's a large file and I was going to deleteit -- can I do this safely or does Win-XP use it -- Im a senior citizen (72) and use the computer most for communication, budget and surfing - nothing exotic!!!  My granddaughter considers her self a computer "expert" -- she might have deownloaded this program.

By the looks of it, it is a programming language and certainly should not affect your ability to use the internet.  I have a few machines, none of them have Python installed and they all do the sort of things that you wish to do without any problems.

Hope this helps

If you or your granddaughter dont use "Python-22" go to the start button; settings; control panel; Add/Remove Programs and look for it on the list. Select it then click the Add/Remove button. Better to uninstall it rather than just delete its files.
