You should be able to safely remove them

Maybe a Suggests, but I'm not sure it'll help anybody.

Not sure xfdesktop is really running. Could you make a screenshot of the
opened menu?

You can remove those two.

You might want to reinstall xfce with 4.6 version.

This one can be safely removed. In fact it's even better since it's not
complete enough to be used in Xfce.

Can be safely removed
