Removing unwanted programs

Last Modified: 2015-03-06
my OS is win 7 prof 64 bit and as i spend so much time on the pc, therefore it meant trying new or improved softwares.  I am thus trying to remove the clutter of the unwanted programs.  Since my OS is win 7, I notice that many of the programs that i have, also have a windows 8.1 version installed.  
Is it safe for me to remove all the windows 8.1 version of any software and retaining the win 7 version in my pc.  thank u for your advise.
