Getting rid of clutter.

  seventiesdolly 11:02 03 Dec 2005

I am running a pretty simple set up - win xp home, NIS2005, and all I really use my pc for is email, ebay, printing and the sims. I'm not on a network or anything, and I wondered what 'built-in' programmes I could safely get rid of that are unnecessary to me?
Thanks for any help..

My Computer, right click the C Drive, Properties, Disk Clean Up.

Ah sorry you mean which programs can you uninstall.

CCleaner is very good at getting rid of most of the rubbish, but make sure that you have copies of passwords available for future use. CCleaner can sometimes remove these on the clean-up procedure.

I already have CCleaner, but it's not just rubbish I want to get rid of, i'm on about actual windows services like 'netmeeting' or whatever it's called, and MSN, stuff like that....

You can safely get rid of Messenger and Netmeeting.

You can also go to Start, Conmtrol Panel, Add or Remove programs. Click on Add/Remove Windows Components in the left hand pane and follow the prompts.
