Hi, i have lots of apple related programs on a toshiba laptop. I own no apple products so are these programs necessary or are they just taking up space?

I have apple application support, bonjour, apple mobile device support, apple software update. Not as many as  Ithought actually. They didn't come with the laptop- but I haven't ever downloaded them because I own no apple products.

 

Also is Nero important?

Also Apple's Quicktime video player comes bundled with a lot of 'junk'. So if you ever visited a site that said you need Quicktime it's possible you picked some up there.
