Is CSS needed?

2008-07-09, 17:33 PM
Hi all. I run a X61 tablet, and I was wondering if it would be possible to uninstall Client Secuirty Systems, but still maintain my tablet functionality. Basically, can I still write on it? Beyond that, how much of ThinkVantage can I uninstall? I find that all of those files opened up greatly slows down my computer. Thanks

CSS can be uninstalled without losing any other functionality.


beyond that, most of it can be uninstalled but you might lose certain functionality in doing so.   here's what i always install with a core OS installation:

-  thinkvantage system update

-  intel chipset driver

-  all necessary device drivers

-  tablet drivers/software (if applicable)

-  thinkvantage active protection system

-  fingerprint software

-  ultranav utility

-  power manager

-  hotkey utility

-  keyboard customizer

-  system interface driver

-  presentation director

-  any applicable registry patches


none of the above will slow your system down in any appreciable manner.


drivers and software for your X61 tablet can be found here.



(edit:  forgot a few items in the list)
