Internet Explorer, Sound Card Driver, Windows Disk Manager, and Windows Disk Manager all came with your system. The rest are add-ons.

I'm not sure what you are asking. If your system is a PC, it will come with the items I mentioned...

If you change the sound card for a different model you will need to install the drivers for it. They are normally supplied with the card when you buy it. You normally get updates for sound cards from the manufacturer's web-site if you need them. In general, drivers for such cards only need updating if you have a problem with the card.

 

Internet Explorer (IE) is an integral part of the Windows OS and receives updates through the windows update system.

 

If you buy a laptop or a pre-built tower then the sound card is built in and configured before you buy it. In this case the drivers etc. can be considered part of the 'system' but they are not installed as part of the Windows OS. If you build a computer yourself you will have to install the drivers for the sound card you install.

In your reference to msIE being a download, yes, it's a download for those wanting to get newer version or older version than what came with the computer.  In my experience, rolling back is harder than rolling forward.  And, because msIE is partNparcel of Windows OS, one cannot [almost] ever delete msIE without dire consequences.  Even though I do not use IE much, 'cause its Internet Options rule the connection to the 'Net world, I keep it running in mint condition.

[PS:  If you're thinking of what you can live without, do not attempt deletion of anything partNparcel within Windows OS without first consulting the software gurus of BC; mistakes can be mortally harmful to Windows OS.]
