Specs: Windows Vista
Hi, I recently bought a new HP Pavilion Laptop
and I want to make sure it's as fast as
possible. I downloaded CCleaner to remove
programs and I would just like to know which
of the following list I should still delete and
which I should keep. Note: These are all the
programs that show up, which means that any
others have probably been deleted. If there are
any that I should have for the functioning of
Windows or my laptop and it's not on here,
please point that out. Thank you.

You can't use CCleaner to uninstall preloaded programs. Ccleaner is a Windows registry optimizer and not a program uninstaller. You have to uninstall each of the so-called "crapware" programs individually.

There are pages/applications that show/work how to strip down systems. I forget the names but both xp and vista are supported. It gets your system down to the smallest fastest it can.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

Most of your list is essential drivers for the system or utilities such as Acrobat Reader, Quicktime and iTunes to deal with media from the web.

Acrobat.com - can delete

Adobe Flash Player 10 Plugin - web utility
Adobe Reader 9.1 - Acrobat Reader, needed for PDF files
Agere Systems HDA Modem - driver for modem
Apple Mobile Device Support - Help for hardware you added such as iPhone, iPod or other device
AVG 8.5 - Anti-virus program
Broadcom 802.11 Wireless LAN adapter - driver for wireless card
CCleaner - Program
COMODO Internet Security - protection program
Google Chrome - possible remove, Internet Explorer enhancement
HP Active Support Library - HP utility
HP MediaSmart Webcam - driver for built-in webcam
HP Quick Launch Buttons 6.40 L1 - HP utility
IDT Audio - sound driver
Intel Graphics Media Accelerator Driver - driver for video card

If this is all that shows in the installed programs then you will not be able to clean much from the system with add/remove programs.
