I found this forum today after searching for something on my Add/Remove Programs list that wasn't on my last laptop (but then this new one has a ton of bloatware that I didn't have before lol.) Apparently PlayReady PC Runtime x86 is a microsoft thingy and doesn't need to be on your page for acceptable Add/Remove programs lists.
Thanks for letting me snoop around. I love this site! (Now I'll go search your forums for all the executables that showed up on the Hijackthis log!)

Hello and :welcome: to Bleeping Computer.

Be sure to check out the New User Orientation and the excellent Tutorials.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

It is unfortunate that every time you buy a computer it is loaded with crud and you have to spend time attempting to remove all of it.
