XM Asia Pacific Spot Bubble Wrap Metric Converter Tap Tap Bear

Windows 7 Home Premium

 

Control Panel / Programs and Features shows these:

XM Asia Pacific Spot, Bubble Wrap, Metric Converter, and Tap Tap Bear

 

What are those?

Yes, new machine (July 2007).

Web search tells me these are games, but I want second opinions.  (Thanks for yours!)

Hi,

 

Well, when you know they are games (actually not all are games) if you wish to keep, it's up to your decision. I've never played games on my computers inlucding Games which come with Windows.

 

Regards.

I think Metric Converter is intended to be taken seriously, though it thinks a Metric Ton is the same as a Ton, at 2204.622622 pounds.

And it doesn't convert watts to Joules/sec, horsepower, or BTU/sec.  Fat lot of good it is.

I'll destroy them all.  If my computer explodes, I'll report here.
