Alright. You should reboot you laptop so Windows can apply some of the changes that it can only apply during a reboot.

I've had a lot of experience with HPs, including my time as an employee of HP. The best way is to do a clean install and start without any of the apps. On your computer, you should have a SWSETUP directory. Back that up as well, because if you decided you want any of those utilities, you can reinstall them from that folder. None of them are really necessary, to be honest.

I blow that away as soon as I can. There's little point in having a restore method stored on the same hard drive. If the hard drive dies, so does your restore method. I do always create the recovery discs, however, and put them in a safe place.

This is a software I use to get a control on startup apps/services/bloatwares.Helped me to cut my boot time to 50 %. Its a bit (just a tiny bit) heavy on the memory but it frees up more memory than it takes. And it has a lovely UI.

If you want to let other software do what you can easily do manually, PC Decrapifier is the way to go.

I installed the software for testing, but its user-friendliness, made me have it installed since two years.
Its deemed that its better that you do it manually. I like things being at hand, that's why I use this utility.

You could make a Windows Easy Transfer file. That will backup the data for your programs, such as game scores. Then, reinstall Windows with an original copy, and install all of your programs. Then, restore the program data with Windows easy transfer by simply double clicking the Easy Transfer file.
