Thanks for the compliment. . .


There are about a gazillion references to the titles you entered. How about telling us more about your system,and why you are curious. Is there a problem? Where are these names listed?

start up

These are listed as things on start up, I thought that I might not need these running on start up for a better proformance of my older computer. Would it be safe to uncheck them, couldn't I find out that way if I need them on start up, I would just be unchecking them not deleting them, right.

I don't think you need them.

I don't have them, anyway. But, of course, you're the only one of us two who knows why he installed the programs and what they are doing and if you need them. This for example seems to describe PCD Realtime:

Hope this helps.
