    If you uninstall Flashcards, the Function (Fn) Keys may not work anymore.

    But anyway if you really need to uninstall it, go to Control Panel, Programs and Features, and Modify the Toshiba Value Added Package features.

    Hi valrick,

    Ok, let’s talk about this difficult issue…

    According the specifications the Qosmio X500-10W is equipped with 4GB DDR3 memory. In my opinion that’s a lot of and that’s only necessary if you play games or do a lot of video editing for example. Otherwise 2GB would be enough for Windows 7.

    So far, so good. First of all may I ask you if you know why Toshiba Flash Cards are installed and which job they do?
    Akuma already wrote, they control the FN keys. If you install them, your FN keys will not work anymore. So I would not recommend this because the FN keys are an important feature in my opinion.

    Last but not least: Do you really think that 17.5MB needs too many resources on Qosmio X500? ;)
    I can’t believe this because there are better optimizations that you can make as uinstalling this important tool…

    hi valrick,
    if you dont need the functionality of the fn-keys...

    software is easy to uninstall...
    search for it in the +software install/uninstall+

    but you are right: running a os needs to free more ram....
    but we are no longer running win3.1 on a 12meg machine...
    so why not run a piece of software which makes some tasks easier for you...

    ... +17536 kb+ is a big amount of memory in times where 2gb ram are standard ;-)

    Hi

    I agree with the above users, 17.5 MB it's not big deal for your computer.
