Why would you want to remove any of that? There's no point. But if you have to, Visual C++ 2005 maybe.

Simple answer: None of it.

It is best to keep those on the computer. Some programs may require the program to run

Thanks guys. I just didn't know because there were so many repeats of everything.

I know you have answers that help already, but here's a general rule of thumb: If you know it's not a virus, but don't know what it is, don't touch it.
