A

Installed programs have certain security impact on your Windows 7 system. Leaving old or suspicious programs installed on your computer will waste registry and hard disk resources.

If malware (Virus, Worms, Adware, Spyware) are installed on your computer and not executed as services, startup programs or scheduled tasks, they are harmless. They if you invoke them by accident, like double-click program files, or selected from program menu, you computer will be infected resulting data corruption or private information stolen.

So understanding how to manage installed programs is very important to keep your computer secure.
