Okay I'm gonna uninstall those 2 things. And if I ever find that he needs them I'll just look around and see what's out there.
Anyways here's a list of the suspect stuff I found on his laptop:
Banctec Service Agreement
Broadcom Management Programs
Digital Line Detect
Earthlink Setup Files
Modem Diagnostic Tool
Music, Photos, and Videos Launcher
Product Document Launcher
Yahoo Music Jukebox
Just ridiculous. Like some of that stuff looks and sounds completely unnecessary but I'm not sure if it's required in order for the wireless or the OS to work properly. Vista
32 bit is what's on my dad's laptop btw.
