I came pretty aware of everything I had on my old laptops task manager and programmes. When I bought my current laptop though it came with lots of programmes and software already installed. I wish to remove all unrelavent programmes and software not needed, but I'm not quite sure what it what.

igfxext Module
igfxsrvc Module
igfxTray Module
(These appear in my task manager does anyone know what they are? When I close them it doesn't seem to change any performance or pysical status.)

They are for your intel graphics card. Have a google for their names, some of them you may be able to do without, but most likely they are all needed.

Search out and install a program called hijackthis (latest version issued by Trend Micro). Run this as administrator and set it to save a log file. Copy and paste this log file into http://hjt.networktechs.com and press parse. This will give you a break down of all processes running on your computer and tell you what they are. It will also tell you what you can remove and what should be kept.
