Montor calibrator: Makes colours sharper and brighter, but will only work with coloreal capable monitors
Not nearly as useful as it sounds. Designed to "improve the color you see on e-Commerce web sites", and only for certain monitors. See the included link for which monitors, or visit and stumble through all the broken links and bad programming until you find it.

Optional video component. Unless you absolutely can't live without it, dump it and free up some resources...
Coloreal was a color technology that was never fully marketed or realized. It tied images with a tag line of code thru the desktop/cpu to the monitor. The monitor was calibrated during manufacture and was set up in firmware to recognize tagged images and display with exceptional color accuracy.

Best practices for resolving coloreal issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with coloreal. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using 1cleanmgr and 2sfc /scannow, 3uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using 4msconfig) and enabling Windows' 5Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the 6resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the 7DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command.
