Hello,

I have used spybots program to see all the startup items that I have on my computer. I was wondering which ones are not necessary. I just got a new laptop and it is very fast but it has 64 processes on it when it starts up. I am not really sure if this is good or not so I was trying to lower it down a bit. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

The programs spybot found:
HP Software Update
HPCam_Menu
NortonOnlineBa...
QlbCtrl.exe
UpdatePRCShor...
WirelessAssistant
Uninstall Adobe...

64 processes isn't bad - you can check the following site for what services are necessary:

As far as Start up applications I'd be inclined to remove those you listed with the exception of Wireless Assistant.
