anyways some of these programs I cant find through the control panel add/uninstall programs... how can I delete some of these?
Or the short version:
If a program is listed under add/remove, it can be uninstalled safely. If it warns you that programs X, Y and Z won't work if you continue uninstalling, you'll have to decide if you need X, Y and Z.
And if a program is not listed there, it's most likely part of Windows, and can not be removed.
I personally recommend you keep Windows Defender and the Multimedia Center. Windows Defender is an realtime antimalware program and the Multimedia Center Offerings are the Sonic burning utilities as well as the DVD player software.
The rest from the list seem like junk to me.
If you want to uninstall programs you can't see in the Add/Remove, try right clicking the program's shortcut and select properties. Find the target of that shortcut and looking around in that folder for the uninstall wizard.
