You have more than enough there lesbos.

Do you have another problem,hence your query ?

hi skidzy i just wondered if having so many different programs they might conflict with each other and wondered if i need to take any of them off

Some will agree with this,some will not.

Ashampoo for me in the past was a real pain,it took over basically.I could not get along with it.
This i would remove !

No doubt Ashampoo has improved greatly since my last involvement with this,however i have often recommended Winaso,this i find extremely good and very reliable.

I cannot comment on your defrag tools as i have not used them before.

For me Winaso click here and ccleaner coupled with a spyware blocker such as Spywareblaster and decent AV and Firewall,then add Superantispyware and Spybot SD.
These programs more than look after and mantain your computer.And of course,Acronis for the ultimate backup.

There is the old could have overkill of apps.

Hi.I agree with Skidzy.Winaso and C Cleaner work great for me,And of course SpywareBlaster.One other Program that you may like is WinPatrol. click here Just leaves a little Icon on your quick start and will warn you if any of your Programs are being changed without your knowledge.It runs itself and you only have to up-date it about once every 3 months.It is free but if you want the Pro version there is a one off payment and that lasts for ever.
