1) It looks like you have both Office 2007 and Office 2010? Do you want to keep both versions of Office or only have one version installed? (There's no right or wrong answer. It's whatever your needs are)
2) Sony has a lot of crap installed to support their own Media Player. I see you have VLC installed. Can I assume you want to remove everything related to Sony's Media stuff? (As instead, you can use VLC, Windows Media Player, or any other player of your choice)
I can answer that simply. If it is not needed, good bye.
I don't know what Office 2007 or Office 2010 is or does so I guess if I don't know what it is/does, I probably don't need either?
"EDIT" yes to #2.
You'll one want. Office includes Word, Excel, Powerpoint, etc. You'll certainly need those. But you'd only need the latest version of Office which is the Office 2010 (it will be able to read any prior versions of Office documents)
What are they used for?
Microsoft Word is for document processing like letters, memo's, sometimes I'll use it to store drafts of a TechSpot post or Guide I'm working on.
Excel is a spreadsheet
You may not need the other components of Office (like PowerPoint and Access) but we can selectively remove those and IMO keep Word and Excel which you should have.
Also, as you've also seen there's soooo much VAIO crap listed. Could you give me a screen shot of the VAIO entries in your Control Panel->Programs and Features. I want to compare the lists between P&F and MyUninstaller
Duh <- me! My bad.
I think I confused yours and another thread.
I think you only have Office 2007 installed and even then it may just be a trial version..... In any case, show me the VAIO entries in P&F and we'll start getting some stuff removed and proceed from there
Ok, I've not used Microsoft Word/excel/powerpoint or ??in 15 some years but have only had it fearing if I removed it,it'd crash the pc.
As for the VAIO crap, here it is.
We'll start uninstalling.
Don't use MyUninstaller to do the uninstall. I think you already use Revo? Use either Revo or Windows Programs and Features, your choice.
With regards to Revo, if an uninstall wants to reboot, I always finish running Revo before I do the reboot myself.
Also, I don't know it makes a difference but just my own habit: after I uninstall 3 or 4 programs, I like to run CCleaner then do a reboot myself before proceeding on. That's said, let's start with these:
Click to Disk and Disk Editor
Roxio Media Creator
VAIO Music Box
VAIO Music Box Sample
VAIO Movie Story
VAIO Movie Story Template Data
Also, I don't that it makes any difference, but
I have used REVO in the past, but I'll use Programs & Features this time & finish with ccleaner. Will post back when done.
As to Microsoft Office, let's see if it's Trialware or if you have an activated copy. Open Microsoft Word. You should get a message telling if you xxx days left or not.
I got this from the Start menu
Yea.. It's Trialware. Use P&F to uninstall MS Office too. There will probably be multiple entries for Office in P&F (such as some for updates). I'd uninstall the base installation. If you're not sure which it is, give me a snapshot of MS Office entries in P&F and I'll tell you what next when I get back later
Ok, in P&F I see these
I'd uninstall in this order
Home and Student 2007
Just got back from a walk. Getting on it now.
Btw... I think they should change the Sony logo. I don't think I've ever seen a more bloated computer!
I understand. Its my 1st one. I've always had 2nd hand HP & loved them.
Where am I to look to uninstall them programs mentioned in post # 91 ?
Oh, sorry. Those are the Microsoft entries in P&F I saw in the screenshot you provided in post #90
We're having our "doh" moments.
That's OK. We're about the same age, I think. The synapses in my brain don't always work quite right either
Yea,add 1 to my avatar. I just had my 61 b-day but still don't feel it.
Ok, the above have been removed & I had to reboot. I used ccleaner for the heck of it.
Well then... Happy Birthday! In celebration, here's some crap to go:
MPC-HC (Media Player - Home Classic)
OpenMG Secure Module
