as far as i know PDEngine.exe is my defragging software. But if i disable it it will not longer be useable. Found that out from past experience.

Which should i disable?

EDIT: one more thing. TrueVector is part of Zonealarm, my firewall

Get rid of that one. j/k

That list looks great. From having seen quite a few other hijackthis lists, yours is very clean.

I suppose you could get rid of these

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [NVMixerTray] "C:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\NvMixer\NVMixerTray.exe"
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [NvCplDaemon] RUNDLL32.EXE C:\WINDOWS\system32\NvCpl.dll,NvStartup

Change the startup type on these to manual in Services.msc

O23 - Service: NVIDIA Display Driver Service (NVSvc) - NVIDIA Corporation - C:\WINDOWS\system32\nvsvc32.exe
O23 - Service: PDEngine - Raxco Software, Inc. - F:\Program Files\Raxco\PerfectDisk\PDEngine.exe
O23 - Service: PDScheduler (PDSched) - Raxco Software, Inc. - F:\Program Files\Raxco\PerfectDisk\PDSched.exe

You don't have any real cause for concern. I mentioned these because they aren't really needed.

YOU DO NOT WANT TO GET RID OF THE FIRST 2, IT WILL TOTALLY SCREW OVER YOUR VIDEO CARD SETTINGS!!!

You never want to get rid of anything nvidia on hijack this, cause one mistake will make you redo all your settings and or reinstall drivers.

it also looks like you have perfect disk installed, you dont need to worry bout that, just unsched your weekly or whatever deals and it wont show up again.

why? i removed it but i didn't take out the service and it seems to be working fine.

Also. the mixer tray is just my audio.

EDIT:

Just checked googled up the NvCPLDaemon and apparently i don't need it and had disabled it in the past through msconfig. Its just that tray icon allows me to set stuff.

"System Tray icon used to change display settings, change the clock rate and memory speed for nVidia based graphics cards. This is unnecessary since you can easily configure these settings the way you want them in the Display Properties and not have to mess"
