please help.

I'm trying to clean up my hard drive but there are some that I'm not sure about whether to uninstall or not. I hope you guys can give me a clue if any of these are safe to get rid of or if they are that vital to my pc. i think some of the updates can be removed especially that i don't have them installed on my pc ( like MS Access, Groove.. etc) but i just want to make sure.

Thanks!

Personally I wouldn't remove any of them. Those updates are there for a reason - primarily security issues. And if you uninstall these two

Windows Installer 3.1

You won't be able to use your modem or install or uninstall any programs
