Obviously some of the things i dont plan on removing but as i wrote earlier if anyone has any tips or alternative ideas then they would be greatly appreciated. I also have one other little concern which is with this website page, for some reason i can't view it as i usually do it comes up all messed up with only a white background and text, i think it could be something to do with html.

The only significant programs are ares and the java devlopment kit, taking about 440mb. I don't know why your JRE uses 150mb?

How large is your drive and how much do you need?
