This is all that majorgeeks.com/PC_De-Crapifier found:
I use these three items almost daily so I don't want to take them off -
Adobe Reader 9.lnk Icon Adobe Reader 9.lnk
Adobe Reader Speed Launcher RunReg Adobe Reader Speed Launcher
OpenOffice.org 3.0.lnk StartupIcon Removing this will improve startup time,but will slow Open Office
I think (but I am not quite sure) that my photocopier/scanner uses one or both of these -
HotKeysCmds RunReg Installed by the Intel 810 and 815 chipset graphic drivers.
igfxtray RunReg Provides access to the Control Panel with a System Tray Icon
The reason I am not sure is that my Sharp AR-M160 photocopier/scanner was installed on-site by the Photocopier Company I purchased it from and he said something at the time about HotKeys - the photocopier is the ONLY thing on my system other than Windows itself that I didn't personally install and I certainly DON'T want to mess with it, as it took the guy from the copier company over an hour to get it up and running at the time and it is an essential production tool for me.
These three items I am not sure I need or not - I think I need more information before I remove them
Persistence RunReg Useful if you use laptop in different screen modes.. ? this is a PC!
QuickTime Task RunReg QuickTime Task Tray
SunJavaUpdateScheduler RunReg Java Runtime Updater
One more thing I wanted to say. I have Asperger's Syndrome and some other disability issues. You will probably notice it mostly, in that I do not generalise rules from examples very well. I can follow instructions fine usually, (I have used a computer pretty much continually since the mid 1980s) but if I don't understand something I will stop and ask for clarification before I proceed. I have a lot of prior experience with DOS, Win 3.1, Win 2000 and XP, but Vista is giving me the whim-whams. So many things I rely on either don't work at all or they work differently to how I expect them to work that I feel like I am just about to crack up at times. I won't go into the whole list now because I want to get this update thing sorted out first of all.
