So I have been looking at some of the application in CCleaner and I noticed that it has a feature where it can turn off programs so I was wondering what programs I could turn off. Please look at the following pictures to see each categories from start up, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Context Menu. Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image So I just want to know what program are safe to switch off so I can slightly increase my performance since my computer lags a lot. Also one last question is, is it bad to have both Adobe Reader X and Adobe Acrobat 7 Pro on your laptop?

From the browser's settings menu or options, look for the add-ons section to disable or tweak some or remove them completely. Do you have a particular issue with your computer? Ccleaner is mainly use for clearing your temp. files and could also be helpful in removing programs, no other. If you want to disable startup programs which are not needed during booting, you can try MS autoruns or startup lite by Malwarebytes.

Adobe didn't support Reader and Acrobat together on the Windows platform until both were at version X (10). There are reports of conflicts running the two previous to version X.

Well, I don't have much issue about my laptop, but it is old so I want to close some useless programs that I don't need because when I use the internet it starts to lag and when I check the Window task manager, I see a lot of program running so I thought maybe closing some of them would help.

Just to clarify, it's bad to have Adobe Acrobat 7 pro with Adobe Reader X unless Adobe Acrobat is version X?

Before the X version came out Adobe would suggest not running the two together.

Is it fine to have both of them on the computer but not running at the same time?

If you update to the newest versions you shouldn't have any problem having both of them loaded on your computer.
