I am in the process of removing several unused programs from my computer, which is well overdue, but I'm unsure of some of the programs. I don't recognize the names, and I am unable to get a clear answer of what these programs are. A few of the program names are as follows:

1) Agere Systems PCI-SV92PP Soft Modem

2) Open MG Secure Module 4.7.00

3) MSXML 4.0 SP2 (KB936181) {there is another by the same title, but a different ending number}


There are several other programs which I do not know what they are or where they came from such as, eMachines Connect and eMachines Recovery Center Installer, but I thought I may start with these because I know these other two came with my pc. I am awfully computer illiterate, so thanks in advance if you are able to help me.

The "Agere Systems PCI-SV92PP Soft Modem" is probably a install modem card in your computer. You may not be using itif you are using a network adapter for the internet, but it does not harm or slow the computer down to keep it installed on the computer. It is just not used by you more than likely.

The "Open MG Secure Module 4.7.00" seems to be a part of the sonic stage software. Heres a Faq page on sonic stage.

This ia one i would not delete as it may affect your sonic software.

"MSMXL 4.0 "is a security update from microsoft. I would leave that on the computer. Microsoft puts in a uninstalled just in case there are problems with the computer. The similar one is also a security update.

SO i would not uninstall any of these and i doubt they are slowing your computer down any.
