Depends on the applications, and whether they have versions that are suitable for use outside of the US.

So, maybe you should tell us which apps you are talking about.

Applications are kayak explore, yellow pages and they are useful only for US, and dashboard widgets: flight tracker, business, web clip, weather, people, movies. And dashboard is practically not useful for me here in Germany.

Needs to remain. The others can be removed using app cleaner or similar (free just Google it)

DB is built in, and I don't use it much either, but it's part of OSX.

You can disable dashboard using terminal.

Not sure if I'm allowed to post links in the forums, but google "disable mac dashboard" and first result should take you to a Macworld article explaining how to do this.

You are allowed to post links in this forum, thus the
icon above the text entry field. As long as the link is complying with the rules, and your link surely would, then you can do it.
I almost always link to already posted or available solutions, as almost all questions about Mac OS X have already been asked too death, thus there are already a lot of answers out there.

No need for such applications, as they miss things.
Best to use Finder:

The Weather widget works fine in Germany, unless you live in some small village in Mecklenburg, which doesn't seem to be in the weather.com database.
Maybe have a look here: http://www.apple.com/downloads/dashboard/
