Novell Netware Client (Windows only): If you login to your computer using the Novell Client, you may not need these services after graduation. Uninstalling Novell can free up some extra disk space as well as simplify your login. However, it is crucial to uninstall the Client properly. An improper uninstall can make your system unstable and prone to crashing. Version 4.8 or higher may be removed following instructions [http://www.novell.com/documentation/noclienu/index.html here].
