What is the Cisco LEAP module, the Cisco PEAP module, and the Cisco EAP- FAST module? - Yahoo! Answers

Now you can uninstall the following.

1. Synaptics pointing device driver

2. All apps starting with Microsoft Visual C++

3. Advise on All apps starting with CISCO is as follows.

Those are three authentication technologies for networking.

LEAP Lightweight Extensible Authentication Protocol, developed by Cisco, it allows for rotating WEP keys for wireless encryption, it's based on MS-CHAP authentication by Microsoft. This is outdated and should not be used unless necessary.

PEAP is a joint venture between Microsoft, Cisco, and RSA for secure TLS tunneling with PKI certificates as authentication.

EAP FAST is the new version of LEAP.

Those are most likely part of your wireless package. If you do not use wireless, you can remove them.

After this please repost the final snapshot to easily identify a few remaining stragglers.

I would suggest not to uninstall Synaptic pointing device drivers.These are needed for your touchpad for 2 finger scrolling,pinch and zoom and other stuff.

Just my 2 cents.

I think you should leave it here. One can suggest a few more Apps for uninstalling but you might need them at one time or another in the future. However if you are not using IE (8 or 9) and Windows Media Player then you may uninstall them too.

Read here Remove Internet Explorer and more with the Windows Features tool | TechRepublic. I have removed them both because I use Chrome as my Browser and iTunes and VLC for my video and music files. There has been no repercussion on this account.

Good luck.

You can turn off almost everything in the Windows Features List because if you miss anything then you can go right back over there again and tick the Check Box to bring it back once more.
