Why is Oracle VM Virtual Box installed on my PC?

I need help solving a mystery. On October 1, 2016 Oracle VM Virtual Box, version 4.3.12 was installed on my Windows 10 PC. I just noticed it today, December 8, 2016. It takes up 80.5 Mb of space. I have plenty of storage. So, that's not the problem. The problem is that I don't believe I downloaded and installed it, and I have no idea what it's doing on my PC. What function(s) is it performing? How can I find out? I want to uninstall it, but not if that will ruin my computer's operations. Only one other person has access to my PC, ( a family member ), and that is only as a "guest" account. I want to know whether or not they may have installed this, and if so, why? I don't want to ask them, ( obviously ). That's why I'm asking for your help here. Thank you very much..... aviation1972
