I will assume you have MS Office 2011 installed on your computer. No I would not delete them. Some of them are require by the MS programs ie. Word, Excel, PP, etc. Some you could possibly delete but I do not know which ones exactly. Hopefully someone comes along that can tell you which is which. In the meantime post a complete list of all apps in folder.

They are helper applications for elements of the Office suite and are needed components.
