    Some on your list need to be there, some are great tools to have.

    There are two that I would get rid of, google tool bar and microsoft silverlight.

    Just personal choices. And neither one takes up that much disk space.

    Most of that stuff is useful, so I wouldn't recommend uninstalling it. I definitely would not uninstall anything with atheros, realtek, or intel in it's name. If you do, your computer won't work.
