If you have any data you don't want to lose, back it up to a flash drive, external hard driver or CD/DVD.

Your best bet would be to install a program like Revo Uninstaller and use it to uninstall any software you don't want. It does more cleanup than a normal uninstall via Control Panel / Add or Remove Programs. It also create a System Restore point before uninstalling.
Alternatively you can look at places like Ebay to a XP Recovery disc for your computer or a XP install CD.
Since the mini has no optical drive, you would need to use an external USB CD drive or make a bootable flash drive to install from. There are tutorials available on the web that tell you how to do this.
This is one of the big disadvantages of a mini or any small form factor computer that does not have an optical drive.
