    Launch cCleaner
    Pick Tools from the left hand menu
    Uninstall should be shown
    Press Save to text ... button in the lower left.

    Then open the text file,
    Ctrl+A to select all
    Ctrl+C to copy the selected text

    Create a new post on your thread
    Press the # icon on the posting menu above to create a Code box
    Ctrl+V to paste the copied text between the two [CODE][/CODE] tags

    Here's what the install list looks like on my machine.

    These are what I would remove if it were my machine.

    First stab... Remove the HP stuff from your Asus machine

    HP ENVY 4500 series Basic Device Software Hewlett-Packard Co. 12/01/2016 161 MB
    HP ENVY 4500 series Help Hewlett Packard 12/01/2016 8.35 MB
    HP FWUpdateEDO2 Hewlett-Packard 03/04/2016 1.53 MB
    HP Photo Creations HP 18/06/2016 14.6 MB
    HP Update Hewlett-Packard 12/01/2016 4.04 MB

    It's not much space, but other than Help and Photo Creations, they are not needed.
    You could move the actual help documents to an external Thumbdrive

    Do you use Photo Creations? It looks as though it was just put on the machine.

    I'll look down the list and offer other thing I would remove - it's your decision to remove or keep anything on your system.

    Apart of Photo Creations, that is software and drivers for the HP Envy 4500 printer. I would not uninstall the printer from my system.

    you're correct, Kari, it is a printer.

    +edit
    An HP Printer on my HP machine does not show all of the install pieces for the printer in P&F.
    I simply connected the printer and let Windows Update provide the drivers ... I did not use a disc or download media.
    I don't have any bloatware, Devices and Printers does present Snapfish and HP total care (to sell more ink!)

    And, Win10 was a clean install, so there was no migration of software.
    -edit

    Thanks

    I agree with @Kari about NOT uninstalling your printer drivers & software, unless you do not plan to use the printer from this computer.

    From a security standpoint, not a space-saving one, I strongly suggest upgrading your 7-zip to version 16.02.
    The version shown in your log is outdated & unsafe.

    >>Since you pruning software to the bare bones to save space on a small drive, perhaps it might be feasible to replace the hard drive with a larger HDD or SSD?
    >>Just a thought....
