Hi. I'm new to this forum and relatively new to computing. I'm not sure if I'm posting to the right place but here goes. First off, I have Windows Xp Media Edition, HP Pavilion dual core computer. I'm trying to safely remove extraneous(it seems to me) junk from the computer. I don't know what HP customer enhancement-1.0.0.168 is. Can it be removed without messing up how things will work? Also, Zone Alarm keeps asking that myFTP.exe wants access to Internet and thatDIScover wants server rights. I have denied both up to this point. Please help a befuddled senior. Thank you.

Hopefully the link is for online chat with their technician, and they should give you the best answer about the pre-installed software

Does anyone use this site

Keith, to this date I have never uploaded to any website. I' lack the confidence to attempt that yet. Thank you for the links to hp and discover console.

Keith, Thanks for the info. I got part of my problem solved. DISCover is gone from my computer. I really don't bother with online game playing. I've heard it has a high security risk. I think HP support will be able to help me with the rest of this mess.

FTP.exe is part of Windows, though I have never seen it kick in

Hope it goes well

Please post back if you need any help with it

Good for you in being proactive with removing what you don't want. I hope everything works out great for you and you enjoy your purchase.
