I had a look through the list and noted what I think you can disable or uninstall but you need to confirm the identification of each item before removing it. The letter at the start of each line indicates:
Y=keep it
N=not needed so can disable or uninstall
?=it depends upon whether you want it, use it or identify precisely what it is

Most of it appears to be from the original install so there is probably little benefit in recovering the original install before removing all the crap and reinstalling Office.

I would start with the main applications that you don't want (e.g. ooVoo, YouCam, Chrome) before looking at startup/background services and device-specific software.

After you uninstall a batch then restart your system. This creates system restore points and, if a problem develops, makes it is easier to identify where a problem occurs.
