Ive just been given a computer and it has installed on it..

Acronis True Image Home 10 . Size 158.00MB

NTI CD & DVD Maker Size 164.00MB

NTI Backup NOW 4 ... Size 123.00MB

CyberLinkPower DVD Size 35.94MB

Windows Media Player

Windows Movie Maker .

Winamp .

ACD Systems

I am looking to clean out as many applications as I can
And wondered if any of the above double up on each
Other ( one application can do the same as the other )

If so I can remove some .?

Thanks Mypenry

The ACD Systems is Digital camera software and graphic organizer. So unless you were also given the camera, it would be useless.

Winamp is a proprietary media player and is second only to Windows Media Player.

If this computer is an acer, the NTI Backup NOW 4 is the program used to make the recovery discs.

My advice mypenry.... you could get rid of Winamp.

Something else that looks redundant is the NTI Backup NOW 4 when you've got Acronis True Image Home 10.
Acronis True Image is a very good backup/imaging program.

The NIT backup program came in a "Suite" along with the NTI CD & DVD Maker, and as you can see they both use a fair amount of resources.
Go to the Freeware Replacements for Common Apps under CD and DVD applications for some good CD/CVD burning software. (I use Deep Burner)

I would recommend that you make a second set with high quality DVDs, also it can be used for imaging and individual back ups, in the few times that I have used it, it seems to be a good program.

Your choice, either NTI back up or Acronis True Image, you only need one.
