Go into msconfig>Startup and uncheck the webcam. Then you can just start it when you want it. http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...-msconfig.html
While there, you can uncheck everything except AV and gadgets/stikynotes if you use them. You may need to reconnect using Windows 7's own Wireless manager in bottom right system tray, but not using the HP Connection Manager bloatware will save you startup time and CPU/RAM.
HP's are larded with bloatware, driving many tech enthusiasts to find a clean copy Windows 7 installer for their version to reinstall without the bloat.
Until then, use Revo Uninstaller in Advanced mode to remove programs you don't want, including whatever bloatware monster AV they put on there. Use lightweight free MS Security Essentials instead. http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/
Revo will run the WIndows uninstaller for you, but when it prompts you to restart, instead click Next on Revo to Delete leftover Registry keys and files listed in Bold.
When finished, run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
to make sure the bloatware hasn't damaged System files.
Then clean and order your HD perfectly with free state-of-the-art CCleaner and Auslogics Disk and Registry defraggers.
