ASUS Splendid Video Enhancement Tech
ASUS Fast Boot
ASUS Wireless Console 3

ASUS Scene Switch
ASUS Face Logon
ASUS Instant On for NB
ASUS WinFlash
ASUS Virtual Touch
ASUS Power4Gear Hybrid
ASUS USB Charger Plus

I also seem to have multi-language version of some of the Microsoft apps installed and am wondering if I can remove them... i.e.

1a) Windows Live Mesh Active X Control for Remote Connections
1b) Control Active X de Windows Live Mesh para conexionex remotas

Am I safe to remove the multi-language ones?

Any and ALL suggestions for cleaning up all this mess will be more than greatly appreciated!

hello... Yes pre-loaded brands have a lot on them... but good for those new-comers to the PC world... If you feel you don't use anyone of those... properly remove using "Control Panel" "Programs and Features"... one at a time and re-boot between.

If you feel you are ready for Just a "Pure Windows Install"... there are other options to you... But every one of those will not be installed.
