I just discovered that the above file is located on my computer, I found out as it turned up wanting me
install an update to it. I read a little about it on Wikipedia and it seems to be installed on many computers.

My concern is that it is a file/program that is on my computer with out my knowledge and I cannot physically
find it anywhere on my system, yet it wants to install further updates.

It maybe an OK program, but I just do not know. Any ideas anyone ?

I believe Python used to come with GIMP for a while. It's a programming language, so might be a translator or plugin like the .net framework.

Thanks for the reply. Never used Gimp, but that is beside the point.

If I cannot see or find Python Software how might I remove it, guess it might be rather difficult !

Depending on how it was installed, you may not be able to remove it. Have a read of the following article, that explains it: https://docs.python.org/2/faq/installed.html
