In ym add/remove programs panel i have a series of programs that i dont know what they are.

They have no file size or info, just there names.

What are they, do i need them, is it safe to delete them??

**Quicktime **Quicktime for Windows (32-bit) **Shockwave **Smartlink 56k voice modem ** 6x Windows XP Hotfix.

They are safe and required, keep them. Type their names into Google if you want more info.

Hi, I would advise NOT to delete. Quicktime is used in various programs to run videos/music/web content etc, Shockwave is also used to show net pages/anims etc. Don't touch Hotfixes - all needed by windows, especially XP. They are not doing any harm on your hd, as I said, I would leave them alone.
