Afaik, only with vlite.

You might be able to remove the folders by hand and and the registry keys - could be messy.

Good idea to turn it off here first tho.

Most of the theme are located here;

C:\Windows\Globalization\MCT

You should be able to simply delete them. As for the DVD Maker, it's a snap to remove;

1 - Open the Control Panel
2 - Select Programs
3 - Select Turn Windows features on or off (in the top left pane [PIC 1])
4 - Open the Media Features and De-select Windows DVD Maker [PIC 2]

Done.

EDIT: Just noticed in the second pic I selected Windows Media Center but it's the option above it!

Since the dvd maker is an included service built into 7 you would simply uncheck the dvd maker item under Media in the services section.

For themes you would have to switch to the HD Basicthemes already included in the Personalization or manually remove the entire default theme pack found in "C:\useres\username(yours)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Themes".

That location contains only user created/downloaded themes, the windows 7 default themes are located at C:\Windows\Resources and C:\Windows\Globalization\MCT

The themes in the "C:Windows\GLobalization\MCT" are the hidden themes seen there and not the active Aero theme found in the Resources folder. Each user account however has a default theme seen there.
