I just bought a Pavilion dv7-4190us notebook and it's full of pre-installed software. Many of these programs I'll probably never use and I don't want them to slow down my computer. I downloaded a program for removing such software (PC Decrapifier), but I'm not sure which programs I can safely remove. For example I think I should keep hp Media Smart, Lightscribe etc. But what about:
- CinemaNow Media Manager
- CyberLink DVD Suite
- HP Photo Creations
- IDT Audio
-HP Media Smart/Touchsmart Netflix
- Label Print
- Times Reader
I already removed Windows Live, Hulu, Corel, HP Games. I want to keep all the programs needed for playing DVDs, BluRay, using the WebCam, listening to music etc. But I don't need 10 media managers that do the same. I'll be grateful for any advice...
Ah, and one more question. At the top of my desktop there's a toolbar with Download Store, Snapfish, Bing browser, links to Netflix, Rhapsody, Hulu and Corel (the last two programs I already removed, and the links are still there...). How can I delete these links/icons? I can't find such option...
Thanks for help in advance!

I would keep these: CyberLink DVD Suite and IDT Audio(this is a driver for a sound card). You don't need the rest or in case you can install them later again. Create a restore point before you make any changes and later just reload it back..
