    Leave the Intel stuff!

    Intel Desktop Control Center - If you ever want to overclock this could be helpful. You can monitor voltages, fan speeds and temperatures (this can be very helpful). Just leave the app but do not let it run in the back ground. Use What's In Startup to control the apps starting with Windows.

    Intel Identity Protection Technology Same here. Appears to be another layer of security. Leave it until you learn more about it.

    Use Revo and Decrapifier to rid yourself of all the trial stuff and useless stuff.

    Is this what you are refering to?

    If this is the tune up utility described then you will not need it and it should be safe to remove.
