You can probably get rid of most of them but unless they are in startup or running processes they are just sat on the disk so wont slow the computer down unless you run them. Most of the Acer stuff looks like bloatware but easiest thing to do is just google the program name proceeded with "what is" and look at sites like "Should i remove it" etc to find out what it is.

Do you need Microsoft 365 as I remember you saying you used Open Office.?
Do you actually need and use Dropbox?
And what is Forge of Empires??

Ray.

The FSA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. http://raynipper.com

Sorry Jean I only just saw your reply, I'll look into it.

I'm less than happy with this laptop, it is much slower than my last one in every way despite it being a better spec.

I am now getting nagging messages to subscribe to both McAfee AV and also to Postimage AV, I only have Postimage on to have greater control for screen grabbing I don't need it for anything else, but can't see how to turn the AV off as I use Windows Defender.
