Remove Vista elements safely

  Kia Ora 07:19 22 Sep 2008

Morning all.

Can I remove 8x Vista elements that have never been used in the months I've had Vista Home Premium?

I, for years have used other programs to do these things and see no point in migrating all info and learning how to do the same thing differently.

An added bonus would be to gain some space, this is not imperative though.

These are the ones I have in mind >

Calendar, Live Mail, Media Center, Meeting Space, Movie Maker, Live Messenger, Live Photo Gallery and Live Tool Bar

Should it be safe to remove all these without causing any problems, using Programs and Features, (what was wrong with calling it Add and Remove Programs)?

if it appears in programs and features in either list , yes it is safe to remove ,although I believe that some of the Vista,s own features only gets switched off and not removed.

Thanks merlinx, that's what I thought but I decided to ask first. Just to be safe.

All gone now and no problems, thanks again.
