Quagmire_expert: Thank you very much for contacting the Intel® communities. We will do our best in order to try to provide the information you are looking for.
In this case, if you are using a laptop, what we normally recommend is to use it with the default programs that came with it and under stock configurations with default BIOS settings. Remember that all the features and programs installed on the unit were installed and customized by the manufacturer of it. So, in regard to your inquiry, the best thing to do will be to get in contact directly with the manufacturer of the laptop, they should be able to let you know how to access and change the settings for those programs and also if the laptop will still work properly if you un-install them, since they might be related to different functions of the device.
Intel® Active Management Technology (AMT) is hardware and firmware technology for remote out-of-band management of personal computers, in order to monitor, maintain, update, upgrade, and repair them.
I found a site that provides further details about the Intel® Network Connections:
Before trying to un-install any of those programs, please verify that it is safe to do that with the manufacturer of the laptop.
