Want to know what HP software can be/should be removed with Windows 10

HP Recommended
HP Pavillion DV7 Notebook
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I upgraded my laptop from Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 Pro when Windows 10 was made available.  I just upgraded my laptop to the Windows 10 Creator Edition today and after the install I noticed that I had a number of HP programs installed that are old and I question whether they are necessary and can be removed.  I've also looked for updates on a few of them for Windows 10 and there doesn't seem to be much there which also makes me wonder if these apps, etc are really needed.  Can someone tell me what can be safely removed and what needed to be kept and why I'd appreciate all the help I can get.  Here's a list of what I have on my laptop:

 

HP 3D DriveGuard

HP Documentation

HP FWUdateEDO2

HP  Games

HP MovieStore

HP On Screen Display

HP Quick Launch

HP Security Assistant

HP Setup

HP Setup Manager

HP SimplePass

HP Software Framework

HP Support Assistant

HP Solutions Framework

HP Update

Hi,


I don't feel the following applications are worth keeping and so I've uninstalled these from both of my HP notebooks:
HP Documentation
HP FWUdateEDO2
HP Games
HP MovieStore
HP Security Assistant
HP Setup
HP Setup Manager
HP SimplePass (remove any registered fingerprint, passwords etc. before uninstalling)
HP Support Assistant
HP Update

Rest you could keep, they're not resource hogging.


Regards

Visruth
