Programs you CAN live without - ALTERNATIVES(27 posts)
instead of removing them and later finding out that you need 'em, disable 'em instead, reboot, and see if your laptop still works. then do the same for the rest doing it one at a time and listing down those you disabled. later on, you could do a fresh, clean install without those bloatware that you listed.
I have an Acer laptop too and you don't need any of it. The only thing i kept was the Acer Launch Manager and the E-settings Management.
The Launch manager let's you use and program the quick launch keys.
The E-Settings Management gives you a lot of good system information. Granted it's all info you could get without it, but it's nice to have it in one place.
I tried running Vista on the lappy, but it just ran way too hot. I've got XP on it now, but it seems like Acer's just run hot. My touchpad and the area around it get really hot to the touch and you definitely couldn't keep it on your lap for very long. Overall i love the lappy, but i would get a Dell next time. Those run way cooler compared to this Acer.
