    Hello .. im not sure what your trying to do here , are you selling the computer or just trying to ge rid of everything on it ??
    anyway here is the list you can remove from my opinion ...
    but it would be best if you could explain what your goals are in this case before you start uninstalling ..
    any why not use the add& remove programs to remove programs . you dont need another program to remove program from your computer ..

    hello timothy,

    I will use the add and remove.. I was just on tony arts at the time after cleaning files.

    I just think that I have an awful lot on there.. I am not selling the computer I just feel I need to get shot of things that dont really need to be there as they must be taking up space.

    Nicky

    ok .. but some of these programs are usefull like messenger to chat with your friends ect..are you sure you want them gone ..
    also what size is the hard drive on this machine you have ,,
    you can click on my computer . and then when that window pops up . move your cursor over the c: drive and let it sit there for a second . then it will tell you your used and unused portions of your drive ..
    hope this helps .
    cheers m8 ..

    wow . sounds great to me .. your only using 7 gigs out of 37 gigs ..
    so you have 30 gigs free space to use before you need to get a new hard drive ..
    so your good to go on that 1 .. no problems with keeping the programs you have now . except the kazaa .. i would get rid of that RIAA magnent ASAP if you dont want trouble ..
    anyway .. your okon hard drive space .
    cheers ;)
