About Vulkan Runtime Libraries

Windows 10 users often wonder where the Vulkan runtime libraries come from on their computers because they did not take any steps to install them. At the same time, the question arises whether this is a virus and why this program is needed in general. That is why it is worth knowing a little more about Vulcan Runtime Libraries on your computers. In general, you can accidentally see this program in the "Programs and Features" section, because when Vulkan is installed on your computer, there is no pop-up window to tell you about it.

But take it easy, this program is harmless and not a virus at all (to be completely sure, you can, of course, run your antivirus solution). In contrast, a runtime library is a collection of additional useful resources and functions that are commonly used by all kinds of programs.

This program, according to users' observations, is installed when Microsoft Visual C + is installed or when Nvidia drivers are updated. You may come across it as Vulcan Run Time Libraries 1.0.3.0 and is published by LunarG, Inc. Vulkan is one of the new OpenGL and DirectX-like graphics standards used in a wide variety of devices, from PCs and consoles to mobile phones. This program helps reduce CPU utilization by best distributing work across multiple CPU cores.

As stated above, the Vulkan runtime libraries are almost always installed with the graphics card driver and if you uninstall Vulkan it will be very difficult to reinstall it again.

However, at the same time, some users reported that uninstalling this program causes Windows Defender to stop displaying information about malware attacks. This primarily concerns the win32 / subtab virus!

Note! If you often play Dota 2, Ashes of Singularity, Doom, Rust, Need for Speed, Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III, Ark Survival Evolved and others and your computer is infected with win32 / subtab virus! Do not delete Vulcan Runtime Libraries, because you will just need to leave the program on your computer. After all, its removal will cause various problems with graphics, especially when playing the above games.
