Toshiba laptop

Hi

Recently I bought the Toshiba Satellite C650D-11R, and I'd like to know what on earth Toshiba has installed on my poor laptop.

Here's a logfile generated by CCleaner of my startup programs:

Thanks

Edit: What I'd like to know is, what there can I safely remove and what does all this do? I'm aware of what Nero does, though.

TOSHIBA Online Product Information: Downloads Help Desk documents. Disable and run manually as needed.
Google Update: Starts and quits. Disable as Google also installs task manager tasks for updating.
StartCCC: Disable. Makes CCC look like it starts faster by preloading most of it. I'm voting for legislation to end this practice as it's downright evil. If your app is a bloated hog and starts slow FIX IT!
ToshibaServiceStation: Try running without it. I run Toshiba laptops all the time with just 7 installed and nothing performs badly. Run it manually and see what it does.
Adobe Reader: Another evil preloader. Uninstall Acrobat reader entirely and install Sumatra PDF.
Adobe ARM: Disable. Uninstall all Adobe products that you did not manually install.
mcui_exe: Uninstall Norton 360 demo and install Microsoft Security Essentials (FREE!).
NBAgent: If you use Nero for backups don't disable. Otherwise it's history.
TWebCamera: That little camera sidebar thing. Nice to have but camera works without it.
SmartAudio: Disable and see if your SmartAudio continues to function normally.
TPwrMain: Toshiba Power Manager. You might use a little more battery without it.
SmoothView: Monitor Zooming stuff. Disable if your don't use it.
00TCrdMain: Press your Fn key. See that hotkey display at the top of the screen? This task does that.
SynTPEnh: Advanced stuff for your Synaptics Touchpad. Most people wouldn't miss it.
TosReelTimeMonitor: Indexer for ReelTime, a media search toy.
TosNC: Message Center. Displays popups that Toshiba thinks are important.
Toshiba TEMPRO: Driver updater: TEMPRO HELP - Toshiba
SmartFaceVWatcher: Facial recognition. Checks if you are in front of the computer and if lot locks it. Disable if you don't use.
TosSENotify: SMART HDD monitoring as best I can tell...
TosVolRegulator: Automatically increases volume in noisy environments and reduces volume in quiet ones.
Toshiba Registration: Registration reminder. Trash it.
TRDCReminder.lnk More nagware. Delete.

Ahem just one tiny little problem... I can't scroll with my mouse pad, and enabling the Synetic thingy in the system start programs doesn't work. Which of the disabled programs would fix this? :

Edit, hm I might have uninstalled it lol it's not appearing in Uninstall programs... where do I download it? Googling "Toshiba Synthetic Download" doesn't work

Yes HKLM:Run SynTPEnh %programFiles%\Synaptics\SynTP\SynTPEnh.exe I think this is your touch pad, I was going to suggest to just go to Toshibia web site and re-install the touch pad drivers but I don't see your exact modle # listed. At least in the Toshiba U.S. Toshiba Support - Homepage Or UK site Have you turned it off and tried it after restating it? This is the one I think may be causing the problem
