I have an old Windows XP, home edition. Mine is a Sony Vaio desktop, about 5-6 years old.
I reinstalled my C drive, just as I originally got it, because it had gotten junky and slow over the years.
On my desktop are icons I don't think I will be needing, such as Internet Access, AOL Broadband, AOL & Internet Free Trial, and Vaio Special Offers.
I don't see any of these in the Add/Remove Programs List. I know if I send the icon to the trash bin, that I am not deleting the actual file.
Should I follow the target path, (right click icon, properties, shortcut tab, target) can I go there and delete the folder? Will I have gotten it all? Is it safe?
On the Internet Access, whose target path is: "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Internet Access", I won't be deleting my ability to connect to the internet, will I? I use a local ISP provider.
Thanks for the help as I try to clean up unwanted things that are taking up room.
