I bought a Compaq Presairo Notebook PC in July 2007. As any of you who have bought a Compaq or HP computer know, HP installs a lot of their software on their computers. This is includes HP Quick Launch Buttons 6.10 B9, HP Total Care Advisor, HP Update, HP Wireless Assistant, HP NetworkAssistant, and Compaq Connections. I'm very tempted to remove all of it. Anyway, during a phone call to HP Tech Support, I queried the guy hard to get a clear answer to this question. What is the purpose of HP Quick Launch Buttons 6.10 B9? What does it add that Windows' Quick Launch bar lacks? I could not get a meaningful answer to the question. Does anyone know what it does, and what would be the impact, if any, of removing it?
