    How do I uninstall the bunch of applications that came preinstalled with Vista and don't show up in any uninstaller? I have:
    Windows Mail
    Windows Media Player
    Windows Meeting Space
    Windows Movie Maker
    Windows Photo Gallery
    Windows Anytime Upgrade
    Windows Marketplace
    standard games like freecell

    I don't know which are part of the OS and which are standalone applications — I realise I probably can't uninstall Internet Explorer, but how do I uninstall the above?

    hello ohana
    those are all part of the os. but if you go to control panel > programs and features > turn windows features on or off (left hand side) you can turn some of them off. i dont know about uninstalling them.
    as for IE , that is the only browser microsoft will let do the updates. so if you plan on updating .dont uninstall it.
