Hey gentelmen.

Just got my MSI GS70 Stealth and I tell you that, this piece comes with a lot of startup applications, which I don't even know what they're doing. Attaching a screenshot here, could you tell me what I should leave and what I should disable? Gracias in advance.

KillerNetManager is not the network card, but simply an application supposedly to monitor/manage it. http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1811389/killer-network-manager-application-killing-connection.html
Kill it.

BlueStacks? Some game thing.
Kill it.

WinZip? Useful, but does not need to be running all the time.

The others? Unknown. I'd have to investigate in depth. You can google for each process name and see if they are something you really need.

The applications you mentioned, these should I keep? Because I know KillerNet is my network card. And yes, I do prefer un-installing. So what should I keep?

Alright then, un-installing these two, about Winzip, should I keep it? Using Winrar anyway. Take your time to investiage about the other applications, waiting to see if others have any idea what they're doing. Thanks for the help Fret.

If you use WinRar, no need to keep WinZip as well. Kill it.
