wow most of that can be turned off... I'd keep the smartaudio, anti-v (Mcafee is not something I recommend however) and maybe the btmshell (bluetooth support)... remember that disabling these just stops them starting on auto at the system windows boot, i.e they are not un-installed and can still be turned back on as required.
edit: keep catalyst control as well.
If you want to then turn them back on slowly (i.e one at a time) until the mystery software comes back.
The forum code tries to be helpful "underlining" key words and making hyperlinks for them so muppets can look up what the word is. I personaly think its a pain because the links offen go no-where but assume Mike likes it... his forum = his rules.
