I have disabled or removed most of my HP stuff as you can go to the Website for Updated Drivers etc. Only thing I have left running in MSCONFIG is HP Wireless Assistant

Mine is a HP510 Centrino cpu 2.13GHz Mobil M processor XP Home

I wouldn't remove the HP user guide. It doesn't take up much room and I've used my guide. HP Advisor is fairly useless.

Magic Desktop is a kiddies environment/games. Suitable to 6yrs? There ain't no kids that young touching my laptop.

I disabled the HP dock on startup but kept all the other HP stuff. It doesn't do any harm but I did come very close to deleting it all.

The tune-up is pretty crap though and I've been using this laptop for 18 months and never noticed any useful updates when it runs.

Kept Games for visitors.

My Support (CQ61-320SA) docs/downloads are pretty good on-line from HP. User Guide also redundant.

I have only recently done a Factory Restore so became re-acquainted with it all.

Use PC Decrapifier to do the honours. Nice little multi uninstaller.
