Removing the files mostly depends on the source of the files.

If you ware wanting to remove a PROGRAM that is installed on the system but you don't use, then you go to CONTROL PANEL, add/remove programs (IN VISTA, PROGRAMS AND FEATURES) select the program to remove, and click uninstall. Repeat for all unwanted applications. Some programs may not be listed in control panel, those usually have an uninstall application in the folder of the program in the Programs Menu (Click Start Programs [all programs] then application folder, then the uninstall link.)

If you ware wanting to remove DATA Files (Music, photos, documents you wrote etc.) then right click the start button, click in the folder tree to find the file(s) you want to delete and right click the file, click DELETE. You can select multiple files by holding hte CNTL key and clicking multiple files.
