Non-essential software

Hi ...

 

am looking for clarification as to which of the following software installed on my HP550 notebook I can safely remove as non-essential. The only HP add-on hardware I currently have installed is the printer. I'm hoping I can live without the 2nd item which as you can see weighs in at a hefty almost half a gigabyte ...
