Here is a list of all of the HP software that came with my laptop. I imagine a lot of it is unneeded, but which ones exactly?

If you are really interested in removing anything and everything that's "bloatware" on a brand new machine the easiest way to do that is to perform a completely clean installation of Windows 10 right out of the shoot using the method outlined in the pinned topic of the same title in the Windows 10 Support forum.


I have 3 HP laptops and I have yet to see anything that HP ships with them that's HP Branded software that's essential to the operation of the computer.  I like their support assistant, but even that isn't critical.
