When you press Ctrl Alt Del you get the Close Program dialog box. Is there a list of necessary windows programs and what they are?

Close Program List

There's nothing really necessary for Windows except Explorer and perhaps System Tray. Other things you see are programs like virus scanning software, audio controls, mouse controls, and the like. There's a full list of things you might encounter here:

When I said that most of the things there aren't necessary for Windows, I meant that literally- Windows itself will run just fine without them.

However, many of the other things you see can be necessary for the overall stability and proper operation of your entire system.
