Do I need these NVIDIA drivers ?

I run a basic Win 7 Pro 64bit system...do not play games...etc...but do watch internet videos from time to time...the attached jpg has a number of items/programs that I am not sure I need on my system....Can I uninstall some of these and which ones ?

Run no games...no stereoscopic, no 3D...etc on the system whatsoever ?

Thanks...TiminAz

All you need out of that lot is the 332.21 drivers which are for your graphics card (there are newer drivers available but aren't completely necessary if you're having no problems with 332.21). If you're using your graphics card for sound via an HDMI cable you'll need to keep the HD Audio Driver too, but if you're using onboard sound or a sound card then they can go. The rest you can get rid of, and be safe in the knowledge that you can always reinstall them later if needs be.

You'll never really need GeForce Experience if you're not gaming (a lot of gamers don't use it anyway and it can be more trouble than it's worth) so don't worry about not having that.
