Windows 7: Programs not necessary?

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Programs not necessary?

I'm unsure about uninstalling these (If I uninstall these programs, will it harm my computer?):

Rather than uninstall, you might check to see if you can disable them through System Configuration (msconfig) which is covered in Method Three.

Startup Programs - Change

That way, should your computer (I'm guessing you have an HP computer since you don't have any system specs listed) need one of those programs it would still be available.

Only you can know for sure if you actually use them or not. Did you recently opened yourself anything from those? If no, most likely you'll not miss them.

Anyway, all of those seems more like the default bloatware that comes preinstalled with all pre-built computers when you buy them. Most times, those can be safely deleted. Have you performed a full, clean install after buying the computer by any chance?
