Hi, I just got a laptop back from my favorite repair guy and I've never noticed this b4 but my mouse didn't work so I started looking at devices etc and found about 9 things called zip hoppers on the screen where my printer is added. There is a symbol of a computer and two music notes and a long serial type number.  What are these? I have the feeling I should delete them. Appreciate your input. I tried searching them on the internet but no real luck. I got partial searches but nothing that related to the serial numbers.

Hello,

symbol of a computer and two music notes

Thanks

thanks for the suggestion,  I'll try that and see. I guess I could call the tech shop and ask him what they are but I'd kind of like to know whether I can trust these guys or not anymore. Hopper could be a dish network thing but we don't run anything at all through that laptop.We haven't downloaded any movies or series etc.

Hello,

Calling the Tech shop is a good idea. It's likely something left over that they may have used in troubleshooting.
