    I was wondering how I get to this list - I have several programs that are always running in the background and I don't need them to be.

    Thanks!

    Here is my list {I haven't downloaded the hijack this software (does that find other things??)}

    scan registry
    task monitor
    pc health
    system tray
    load power profile
    nav defalert
    norton auto protect
    disc detector
    creative launcher
    audio hq
    ctav tray
    hpaio - print folder manager
    adaptec direct cd
    create cd
    load power profile
    scheduling agent
    *statemgr
    ms office startup
    hpaio device
    hewlett packard recorder
    winzip quick pick

    I know there are some here that I don't need to be there (winzip, creative launcher, create cd, office start up) but I don't know what a lot of the others are.

    Thanks!! :)

    Yes, Hijackthis shows a lot more items.

    Of hand I would disable these:
    create cd
    ms office startup
    winzip quick pick

    And some of the Creative Junk like:
    disc detector
    creative launcher
    audio hq
    ctav tray

    And maybe some of the HP software:
    hpaio - print folder manager
    hpaio device
    hewlett packard recorder

    thank you, triple6! I will delete the ones you suggested and download that hijack software and return once I have a more complete list.

    Thanks again!!
