Howdy folks,

I'm doing some spring cleaning and would like to get rid of modules that are not being used.  There are many that are installed by default by DNN.  Several of which are collecting dust in the corners of our install.  Which of these are safe to get rid of?  I feel the need to ask this because I un-installed one of these modules not realizing how integral it was to the functioning of the system as a whole and it brought our site down (I won't say which module it was lest ye be tempted to laugh, lol) .  Would those of you with more knowledge of the ins and outs of the system be so kind as to place a YES or NO next to each module listed below to help the rest of us out?  I've started it out ... if I've mislabeled anything please forgive my neophyte-ness and correct my spreading of mis-information before it wreaks havoc ... much obliged:

Honestly I would put a NO next to each one of those... They are all used somewhere Critical to DNN if you're using any of the functionality.

They will all also get upgraded/installed every time you do an Upgrade for DNN.

The only one that MAYBE you could punt is the security analyzer.

Ok ... good to know. No need to un-install them if they'll just be reinstalled later ...
Thanks so much for taking the time ...
