I've eliminated a lot of unnecessary programs from my two-year-old Packard Bell Plationum I computer--games, crossword puzzles, cookbooks, kid's stuff. I'd like to eliminate more, if I could, but I don't know what some of the other programs do. Where can I get a list with descriptions of these programs?

If you don't know what they do then you obviously don't need them.

I think the easiest way would be to do a search (www.excite.com, www.yahoo.com, www.altavista.com, etc.) on the names of the programs you have. I'm sure you'll find more than enough information in this manner. I don't think you'll be able to find all the info on one website, specially if they are fairly old programs.

willemnel's answer is good. Goliath's comment is nonsensical, implying that ignorance is bliss.
