Bravo for asking first....my mother thought she'd do some "housecleaning" on her PC and deleted all sorts of tiles, then couldn't figure out why it didn't work anymore!

Most of the files are there to make your computer work. As a very general rule, the files in Windows folder pertain to the OS, Program Files folder is for applications (most often where the software to run those apps is deposited), etc. Your personal stuff should be in the folders that start with My....My Games, My Music, My Pictures.

If you want to remove an application, go to Control Panel>Add/Remove PRograms....if you are unsure about a specific file, research it a bit...
