......and I've got a ton of questions. Ready:confused:

1) I use AVG Virus. In "Add or Remove Programs" I have iPod for Windows 2006-10-10 with the AVG symbol before it (and it's 97.00MB). A couple of lines down there's iPod for Windows 2005-09-23 with the iPod symbol next to it (62.80MB). Do I need both?

2) In "Add or Remove Programs", I have Canon Photorecord (36.75MB). I know what it is (program for editing digital pics), but I barely use it. If I delete it, am I able use another similar (and most likely smaller) program that I can dl on-line for free (Picasa)? Also, will my computer still be able to read my Canon digital camera?

3) Same question as #2, only it's Canon Powershot G3 WIA Driver (2.27MB). The Powershot G3 is still the camera I use.

4) How about Dell Digital Jukebox Driver (1.51MB)? I don't even know what this is?

5) K-Lite Mega Codec Pack 1.51 (2.02MB). I used to use Kazaa-Lite before I found out it was illegal and removed it. Do I still need the codecs in here to play other media?

6) I have Norton Spyware Scan provided by Yahoo (15.34MB). I obviously got this thru Yahoo which is my primary email service. However, I can't find it anywhere. Before I upgraded to IE7 it was in my toolbar and I was able to run scans thru that. Any idea on how I can get it back? I did a "Search" but only found the files, not the launch icon. ALSO, if I'm using AVG do I even need it?

Heres some answers:
1. I would not remove either, one is possibly an update
2. This is a program that arranges photos downloaded from your digital camera on album pages......it helps you create photo albums/ your choice on this one
3.  Leave it be
4. This is a digital audio player, for listening to music and such
5. The K-Lite Codec Pack is designed as a user-friendly solution for playing all your movie files. I would leave it be
6. No you really dont need it but it bothers me where it went. Click on the toolbar in IE7 for add-ons or toolbars, it may be just turned off.
