Cyberlink DVD suite may be useful if you ever decide to hook up an external optical drive, but if you think it's slowing you down, or just don't want it, go ahead and uninstall it. The cloud drive is a utility for "virtual" storage. In otherwords, you upload files, pictures, etc. not from your computer, but from a server or group of servers on the web. That's actually pretty usefull, and the software that resides on your physical system shouldn't be holding you back. Definately leave the IDT audio alone. Removing it may very well cause problems with your sound. The rest of what you describe sounds like the usual hp junk. My best advice is to make your recovery disks and an applications and drivers disk. There should be a recovery media creator under "All Programs" that will walk you through it. Of course, in order to mke recovery media, you'll need to either hook up an external DVD burner or use a flash drive. Anyway, when that's all done, you should be able to remove whatever you want,and if it turns out you needed or wanted it after all, you can put it back with the recovery.
