That's an awful lot of stuff for others to go through, much of which you can investigate yourself using Google if necessary. Surely you don't expect someone to comment on things like "Angry Birds"? Either you play it or you don't. Other applications you use or not. My general comment would be not to delete anything related to the Windows OS or its updates. Ditto for the Intel stuff which I don't know much about, Realtek, Acer (the manufacturer?) some of the Adobe. Even things like Speedfan can be installed with no operational control and could be removed. If you have your fan speeds driven by it then it's a different matter. You have numerous filesharing and security programs, only you know what you use. If nobody else chops the list for you, I can only suggest you investigate as I suggested and come back with two lists, one of probable deletes and one of the rest.

I have italicised in your list those entries which appear to be games, and can be deleted if you do not play them. You could also delete Utorrent and Bearshare if you do not use them, as well as Opera (since you have Firefox). The rest you should only delete after careful research.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

If hard drive space is scarce, you can use MS's Disk Cleanup utility to get rid of a lot of accumulated gunk. It is under system utilities in the accessories folder.

Do I need that? 369GB of 450GB free.

You should run the cleanup utility on a regular basis to get rid of the junk. Even if hard drive space is not an issue the build up of the junk can cause your computer to run slower.

If you want to reduce the number of unnecessary files on your hard disk to free up disk space and help your computer run faster, use Disk Cleanup. It removes temporary files, empties the Recycle Bin, and removes a variety of system files and other items that you no longer need.

BearShare - PUP
LogMeIn Hamachi - Remote Access, if you dont use it, dont keep it.
Spybot - Search & Destroy - Ineffective anti-malware. You have MBAM which is better.
TeamViewer - Remote Access, if you dont use it, dont keep it.
