I recently recieved a computer and would like to "clean" it as much as possible.
It is an HP laptop with Windows 7 [SP1], intel core i5 @ 2.4GHz, 64-bit Operating System, 4GB RAM.
I would like to have a little more insight as to why so many exe files are running upon startup and what these files are doing (helping or hurting?). Below, there is a list of some of these. I really appreciate any help you can offer.
Task Manager --> Processes

Image Name Description File Location

pmmUpdate.exe PMM Update Application C:\Program Files (x86)\EgisTec IPS

csrss.exe [blank] C:\Windows\System32

InstStub.exe Norton Internet Security C:\Program Files (x86)\NortonInstaller\{0C55C096-0F1D-4F28-AAA2-85EF591126E7}\NIS\A5E82D02\

igfxtray.exe igfxTray Module C:\Windows\System32

igfxpers.exe persistence module C:\Windows\System32

sttray64.exe IDT PC Audio C:\Program Files\IDT\WDM

AmIcoSinglun64.exe Single LUNIcon Utility for VID 058F PID 6366 C:\Program Files (x86)\AmIcoSingLun
I may find more.
Thank you in advance.

Well you have Norton Installer which is Anti-Virus, Intel Graphic Tools to make changing resolution easier, csrss is a critical system file and service, sstray is probably sound card stuff, and the other 2 I do not know.
