I'm always curious to know whats running in the background by looking at the tray icons either on my friends laptop or on public computers. It gives a little sense of security to me. Taking the curiosity to the next level, here's a thread to show your tray icons. I'm sure many of you have the same curiosity like me to peek at the tray icons. ;) Please expand the triangle and show your hidden icons too.. :D

Here's mine.. Not very interesting though :rolleyes:

Action Center notification may come and go, depending if any attention is required.

I always disable Intel HD graphics and Rapid Storage technology... Did not make any difference... you can shave off some running process if you do...

@Lailson SCM controls basic functionality of Windows, however, I mostly switch between Eco and Game mode using the keyboard (Fn+F5), signed by MSI.

I've only disabled HD Graphics tray icon, do you have Graphics Options from the Desktop? No idea about disabling it completely.

Got here. I'll take a look if worth being install the SCM. 'll Also have to update the driver of ELAN, because Iobit Driver booster is a denial to update driver. Is difficult to find a software that is free to a good driver updater. Thnks! :)

Disable igfxpers.exe, hkcmd.exe and another executable(forgot the name) under system32 folder. Open msconfig and see which processes are started from system32 folder. I don't have any negative impact disabling these 3 processes.

persistence module... that's the third one...
I don't know whats the delayed launcher is about, but you don't need iastoricon as well.. In short you don't need any intel process running in your system... also you can go to control panel -> Intel Graphics & Media and check if there is any option to disable on startup..
