You will probably need flash player for various websites and other things. Other than that, I don't use Adobe products at all. Especially not Adobe Reader (PDF). Instead, I have Nuance PaperPort 14 and PDF Viewer Plus comes with it. Otherwise, I'd use one of the other freebies out there like Cute PDF.

Bridge is part of Photoshop, really depends on what Adobe Apps you have installed.
Here's a list of Adobe products, just click on the application name for an explanation!

Remembering, of course, The old adage and Xhi's rule #1. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" applies. It hurts nothing to just leave them alone. It may hurt something to remove them. They would not have been downloaded if some program you installed did not need them.

Thanks geeks, I have decided to leave them alone, but will look in future to see what they are about before downloading
