who can help me out? (screenshots inside)

i need help getting my computer down to bare bones programs... i have OCD like this.

the ONLY things ill be using this computer for is:

itunes
internet surfing (youtube videos, forums, google etc.)
itunes
mild gaming (no games installed yet)
and maybe some word processing

i would like to uninstall everything off my programs list thats not essential to me, to clean this thing out as much as possible.

so i would greatly greatly appreciate it if someone went through this list and told me everything thats safe to remove that wont cause issues.. thanks guys.

Rather than wade through all of that, I would instead download a Windows 7 ISO from mydigitallife.info, burn it to disk, and then do a clean install from that burned disk. The new install won't have any of that HP stuff and will just be Windows itself.

From that point on, see if you can do what you need to do with built-in Windows utilities and applications.

If it turns out you have a task that Windows doesn't do natively, then investigate and download or buy the best app for that particular purpose.

I fully agree with this advise. This would be the best way to go. You can download the Windows 7 ISO image from Download Windows 7 ISO (Official 32-bit and 64-bit Direct Download Links) My Digital Life

I find in the later message of yours that you want to follow the path outlined in your original message. In that case first uninstall everything beginning with "HP" in the list posted by you and then again upload a screenshot of the remaining items. This will make pinpointing of the other programs to be uninstalled easier to me.

Why do you want to uninstall those programs. Are you short in disk space ?? If not, I would not worry about those programs that sit quietly in the program library.

The OP is suffering from a disorder according to his first post. He probably can't help himself and would otherwise suffer anxiety about something being unclean, out of order, or inappropriate.

What's that Cisco and Waterfox stuff for? They are not part of a basic Windows installation.
