I have a Toshiba laptop, Satellite A105. A few weeks ago I had a game from the library, Prison Tycoon, which I installed. I have since uninstalled it and taken it back to the library. After I installed it, however, there were weird programs in the taskbar that I had never seen before in the year and a half I have had the laptop. They stayed there after uninstalling the game. They are: Toshiba Power Saver Setting, Toshiba Virtual Sound, Toshiba Zooming Utility, V.92 Modem on Hold App, CD/DVD Acoustic Silencer, ATI, Toshiba Touch and Launch, and Synaptics Pointing Device. Ever since they appeared I have not been able to use Appearance and Themes to change power settings.
Are these things bad? Good? Do I need them or can I uninstall them somehow? Have they always been on my computer or were they installed by the game?
