        Looking at some of those ghastly culprits I’d say that’s not too bad a list, however, if there are any that you are unsure of, type ‘services’ in your Win7 search box and just disable that service, and don’t uninstall should you need the program in the future.
        If you need some of them, check for program updates also is my advice even though they are still stitting in storage on ice.
