    Some software gets updated and moved frequently, so it would be a big job to constantly check the versions and locations of all these programs.

    Remember, this is a users' forum. Somebody already went to a lot of trouble to assemble this thread....a couple minutes of leg work on our part isn't too much to ask. ;)

    Also, some utilities are no longer in use or have been replaced by others like the ATK package replacing ATK_Hotkey, ATK_Media and ATK_OSD2. I could add a link to some of those, but they will go out of date eventually as well. Besides, if you're looking to do a clean install, you'll have to do some driver hunting as well. All are available on Asus' support download page which shouldn't be hard to find.

    And a final point (in case the horse isn't dead yet): It's not unusual for Asus to package different versions of a utility for different models. So not only does the ATK Package, for example, "evolve" over time, but the ATK Package for one laptop is probably not appropriate for a different model.

    I have an n53sv and I uninstalled some random bloatware (Some chinese windows update, and few DVD Burning softwares) and now for some reason my Google Chrome won't open, and my AVG Window opens but its completly blank. None of the hotkeys on the keyboard are working aswell as the volume keys above the keyboard. Does anyone know how I can fix this?

    For the hotkeys, reinstalling the ATK package will fix this. For the rest i'm not entirely sure what the problem is.
