    I searched posts for two days and found nothing that was what I need. My machine had Visual Studio 10 on it, but I recently took it off. That's where the question comes in. In my Add/Remove I have all these Microsoft entries for SQL Server, Visual C++ 2005-2010, and MS XML. I am trying to trim all the fat from this machine. Question is, do I need all this stuff or can I clean it out. Something keeps pegging my CPU @ %100. So, I am stripping down till I find it.

    Yes, you can remove all that ... but only the SQL stuff is probably actually "running" on the box. Here is my uninstall list for VS2008:

    • Microsoft Device Emulator
    • Microsoft SQL Server *
    • Microsoft Visual Studio Web Authoring Component
    • Windows Mobile 5.0 SDK R2 *
