Bloatware on Brand New PC?

I just got my customized PC from AVA Direct on Friday. I just want to make sure that I can remove the following programs (bloatware?) on my PC without any harm to Windows.
Here are the programs I would like to remove...and if there is a reason I should not could you tell me why.
1.  My PC Backup (License fee's required)
2.  Weather Bug (pretty sure this is fine to delete)
3.  3D Vision Photo Viewer (I already have my own photo software).
4.  Opera
5.  One Drive
6.  Xbox
7.  Super Optimizer (pretty sure there are fee's required).
8.  Candy Crush
9.  Driver Restore (I think, but not sure fee's are required... it does require registration).
Thanks for any tips and/or suggestions regarding these programs.

    Hmmm no reply for more than a year? Oops. Maybe support isn't so great on AVAdirect.

    It appears this post was made during a period where our forums were upgraded to a new back-end interface, and was not appearing under any of our "New Post" notifications. Everything appears to be in working order, as of now.
    Additionally, the post above appears to be spam, as we do not load a single one of those applications (or bloatware) on our machines. If you google search a few (Driver Restore, Super Optimizer) these appear to be programs that must be found online, and are often designed to reel-in unsuspecting victims by their supposed usefulness. 
    If our customers require technical support for any reason, they are more than welcome to contact support via the following avenues. 
    Thank you very much, and have a wonderful day!
