    Hi everyone,

    Does anyone know what are the PVWmdrmProxy and PVWmdrmService services and why are they always running on my new HTC Sensation XE?

    Also, can anyone shed light on what the following services (always running) do and if they can/need to be shut off to avoid battery drain/RAM hog?

    1) Calendar
    2) Google Services
    3) Maps
    4) KKBox Player Widget
    5) Facebook

    Note that I have ALL widgets removed so I don't see why do the Facebook and KKBox services need to run? They do nothing anyway but take up all my RAM unncecessarily. Similarly, I don't have GPS or whatever on, so I don't see why Google and Maps services need to be running.

    Thanks in advance.
