Re: Can I trim down mySQL?
IMO you should definitely keep mysqld.exe

This is the main file used to start up MySQL when using an Apache webserver. You might think that mysql.exe is used for that, but take a look at the DOS-window popping up when you are starting MySQL. Notice the mysqld on top of that window?
I am assuming you use an Apache webserver, but as far as I can tell, this applies to other webservers as well.
