Intel "ProSet" notebook Wireless device Question. Why so many applets?

Hoping someone has traveled this path before. on an older notebook [dell] I have intel proset embedded wireless device. the default software wad that Dell/Intel publish for the device is really bulky, kicking off several services and *.exe's at startup.
Why? I really don't need anything [as far as I know] other than the default MS windows wireless facilities... do I?
Just wondering which of these I can disable.

Curiously, I removed the big installation that had appearance in the Windows Programs install/uninstall list, but it left all this stuff intact in Programs folder, with entries to run them at startup. I reinstalled the device by just 'updating' the driver from their drivers folder.

any advice will be warmly received! thx
