Is all this HP software bloatware?

Recommended Posts

I have a HP-G72-B53 notebook with Window 7 Home Premium 64. I've known that redundancies exist in OEM notebooks, so I just want to make sure all these HP items are unnecessary:

  • HP Advisor,
  • HP Power Manager
  • HP Quick Launch
  • HP Software Framework

And,no I am not concerned with voiding warranties.

Deleting these oem programs will not void your warranty

But are they necessary?

I know for sure that HP Quick Launch is necessary in order for the touch buttons on the laptop to work (the mute, volume, start/stop touch buttons).

I am not so sure about the rest of these programs, but I don't think they affect anything important.

Yeah, I've been wondering the same question, but haven't bothered to check it out for myself. I'll probably check it out this weekend, though I'm not sure that we have the same matching HP crap-ola...

And the best way to add NEW SOFTWARE to your new system is to just use this freeware App - http://ninite.com/

Works great!

      Hi
      When composing emails in Outlook 2007 Vista, I've always had a mini toolbar present at all times -until now
      Suddenly it has disappeared and only fleetingly reappears when I click on Message, Insert, Options,Format Text pull downs menus
      I realise that I'm thick, but how do I get the mini toolbar to stay there while I'm composing my new email?
      Many thanks for any fix you can suggest, it's driving me mad

      A couple of years ago I disabled wireless on a HP pavilion using XP, by turning a 1 into a 0 in the registry. I can't remember how to undo that. Please help.
