I built a PC in 2007, when I barely knew what "right-click the mouse" meant. It is going out soon, but in purging some old SW I installed, I saw listed some things that I am not sure I can safely remove. Also I just finishing installing SP3 and all MS Updates to the present. Including NTFX 3.5 SP1. ( i do not know if I even need that)
The PC does NOT have MS Office installed. Just Abiword, and I may install MS WORKS after I resolve this question I have. The PC runs absolute perfect and It is modded with blue flashing lights and cooling fans and it is in fact called "Blue Lightening. Just thought I would throw that in because I am really still a beginner and I am proud of This machine except for tf I have inadvertently put on it. I think !!
Following is a list of the items in "ADD-REMOVE PROGRAMS":
1---MS User Mode Driver Framework Packet 1.0
2---MS Visual C++ 2008 ATL KB973924 x86 9.0.307----
3---MS Visual C++Redistributable x86 9.0.21027
4---MXML 4.0 SP2 KB927928, kb954430, kb973668
5---Net Framework 3.0 SP2
6---Net Framework 3.5 SP1
Under drive C:/ There is a Zip folder VC_RED and A installer (VC_RED) Along with a bunch of EULs for Visual Basic Beta (really Old?) and matching DLL files. do not know if they are installed yet or just downloaded or what they are doing on this PC.
I just need to know if I can get rid of f the above listed items. So the QUESTION IS:
What items above can i safely uninstall and/or delete from this installation of WINXP SP3
I have feeling that stuff is way over my head and does not beelong there.
Thanks in advance--
