I have two programs in my Windows 7 computer; 1) AverMedia A320N MiniCard Pure ISDBBT  AND 2) ASUS  GPU Tweak that I can not remove. When I search the web for information on these programs I find a lot of help about removing then by downloading other programs but little about what they do in my computer. Any suggestions?

Hi Samtop :)

I suggest you to keep the first program since it's related to AverMedia's hardware you might be using. Uninstalling it could cause the device or peripheral that uses that program to stop working. As for the second one, ASUS GPU Tweak comes on pretty much every ASUS computers. It's a small program that takes close to no space or resources. Any reasons why you want to remove them?

Do you have an AverMedia tuner card installed?

To Aura;     Thanks I will keep it even thought, I never used it.

 

To Moderator;Louis,     You know what, after trying and trying the AverMedia program did remove. I do now realize that I have a TV tuner that came in with this HP  but I have not used it for quite some time. I guess I will have to reinstall it if I want TV in this computer.

 

Thanks you guys, I appreciate your quick response..
