The other thing is software that’s constantly ‘on’, communicating on the Internet, and taking up too many resources. My Lexmark All-In-One software is like that—never anything else from Lexmark for me!

Same here. Several years ago, I bought a Lexmark inkjet locally (not many stores in this town of 14k). It had a 30 day warranty. I bought it for home use, so I only printed occasionally. It printed about 20 pages and then the mechanism locked up. Of course, that was a couple of days after the warranty expired. It was nothing but junk. I swore I would never buy anything Lexmark again -- and I haven't.

You might want to get a freeware program called Winpatrol. All those programs make registry changes, and this software will not allow that without your approval, and will also help you identify which process is doing it should it get installed, and allow you to easily disable it.
