    Doing some house cleaning as it were, and I found this: PlayReady PC Runtime x86. What is it, what does it do, and do I really need this?

    If it's the same thing as I found, it's a DRM runtime from MS:

    I don't think it's doing any harm there, so I'd just leave it be - unless you know that you won't be using it :).
