I have a Toshiba Satellite L655 running Win7 Home Premium. Recently at every startup I get the error message that Toshiba Service Station has stopped working. This led me to run msconfig and disable Toshiba Service Station from running at startup. I also noticed all the other Toshiba items that run at startup and was wondering which ones I can safely disable OR remove from the system altogehter. Here is the list: 


Toshiba Service Station (already disabled)

Toshiba Online Backup 

Toshiba App Place 
Toshiba Button Support 
Toshiba SmartFaceVWatcher 
Toshiba Volume Regulator 
Toshiba Message Center 
Toshiba Flash Cards 
Toshiba Zooming Utility 
Toshiba eco Utility 
Toshiba ReelTime 
Toshiba HDD SSD Alert 
Toshiba PC Health Monitor 
Toshiba Power Saver 
Toshiba Web Camera Application 
Some of these are self-explanatory, but others are sort of cryptic. Any advice?

All of the Toshiba addons can be safely removed or disabled.

I would leave the button support application installed personally. Not that it is essential for the machine function.
