Help optimizing start up programs

I just bought a new Toshiba laptop with windows seven which is great so far, but being the optimization freak i am i was just wondering what programs i should and shouldn't remove from the start up menu here is the list.
1. MyToshiba
2. IgfxTray
3. HotKeysCmds
4. Persistence
5. RtHDVCpl
6. SynTPenh
7. SVPWUTIL
8. HWSetup
9. KeNotify
10. TPwrMain
11. Smoothview
12. 00TCrdMain
13. ToshibaServiceStation
14. TosSENotify
15. Adobe Reader Speed Launcher
16. Adobe ARM
17. AVG9_Tray
A couple of them i know like obviously AVG9_Tray is my anti virus, but what can i get rid of to optimize my system without losing functionality of keys and things like that.

Google each one, see what they do, and decide if you can delete it from start-up without it halting your boot, or disabling your functions.

Just reformat with a fresh copy of 7.

Or get rid of these..most of them look unimportant or crap related to Toshiba. You can google any that you're not sure about to check and see what they do.

No no, don't reformat. The restore image will only put the same crapware back onto the machine. Just get rid of everything there except the antivirus. Everything else is junk.

Hello Acid, and welcome to Seven Forums.

This link at Toshiba below can help show you how to, but it will only restore it back like it was the day you first turned the computer on with bloatware and all. I would recommend to create a set of recovery discs as well as a backup in case something happens to the hard drive and you ever want to be able to reinstall Windows 7 back to factory defaults again.

How to use the Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility

Hope this helps,

Most of the items you have listed are seen in my lappy too. I disabled all. I would say, keep AVG9. Check if some of the services used by your lappy(Toshiba) is being used by you. If not, uncheck them.

You are the best judge!!
