Reading comments on one of the malwarebytes lab posts I learned that Dell Tech Support and PC security is far from good. All of the items in the screenshot were pre-installed from Dell.

I was wondering how many of them could be safely removed and which ones actually serve the PC rather than Dell.

Hi FoundMarbles :)

Do you still need assistance with this issue? Since your thread is old, it'll be closed if I don't hear back from you within 3 days.

Thank you!

Aura, Thank You! Yes, It has been a while since I posted that question and you are the first response I have had. As noted in the question, I'm just wondering if any OR all of those Dell  programs are require. (Dumb me,  Dell Update is an obvious keeper!)  The product is registered already and the all those support bits have prove hard to navigate or useless. I just phone them instead.

Well, in order to answer you, I'll need a list of the programs that are installed on your system so let's take a look.
