well, I would loose the windows defender, and adobe reader.
can't see no reason for calculator plus either.

haven't tried avg antivirus, but another alternative could be avast!

what is paint.Net?
mspaint written for .Net? then it can go too.

paint.net is a photshop type app... much easier to use than GIMP and just as powerful (or close enough). And much easier to manage without the GTK stuff

Adobe reader is better than Foxit, as foxit doesn't manage forms. If you pull out most of the acrobet plugins, acrobat is very snappy.

Calculator plus does lots of unit conversions... necessary in the US as it has been 30 years and we still aren't metric.

I use CDBurnerXP for freeware burning, it is much like Nero... however, I do like PortableDeepBurner.
