Lol, I was being sarcastic. I know what they do =) My logic behid the whole thing is that... if a 1000$ soundcard doesnt need all those capacitors to make clean quality sound, then why would the audigy? If the design and hardware on the card itself was so hot then other manufactures would be doing the same thing.. When infact if you go look at all the other audio cards in the world you'll see the exact opposite.

Senseless doesn't know what he's talking about, he's just trying to find everything wrong with Creative, even things that aren't true...

Oh and about the user interface stuff, you can disable a lot of that crap. Anyone who has experience with creative should know their drivers are a little bit bloated. You should disable the things you don't need.
I'm only running one process from Creative and that is CTSVCCDA.EXE which is using only 916K memory and 0% cpu usage (better than the m-audio eh senseless?). All the other things you shouldn't need really for basic usage.

Isn't csrss.exe a regular windows system process? I don't think that has anything to do with creative. CTHELPER you definitely do not need. Type msconfig in the run box and uncheck it. I don't have CMESys.exe on my computer anywhere. Try disabling that too, and if you lose some functionality turn it back on.
