I have a HP-G72-B53 notebook with Window 7 Home Premium 64. I've known that redundancies exist in OEM notebooks, so I just want to make sure all these HP items are unnecessary:

  • HP Advisor,
  • HP Power Manager
  • HP Quick Launch
  • HP Software Framework

And,no I am not concerned with voiding warranties.

Deleting these oem programs will not void your warranty

But are they necessary?

Yeah, I've been wondering the same question, but haven't bothered to check it out for myself. I'll probably check it out this weekend, though I'm not sure that we have the same matching HP crap-ola...

I know for sure that HP Quick Launch is necessary in order for the touch buttons on the laptop to work (the mute, volume, start/stop touch buttons).

I am not so sure about the rest of these programs, but I don't think they affect anything important.

And the best way to add NEW SOFTWARE to your new system is to just use this freeware App - http://ninite.com/

Works great!

I did a google search on all the apps you listed and yes, you can uninstall all of it and you won't lose anything. perhaps a quicklaunch feature etc... however your warranty will be fine.
