All have to do with your Wireless connection. And you are right, exptremely hard to understand. Here is what I found, understand none of it but if you have a Wireless connection I would imagine this is why these are on the machine. Even if you don't have a wireless connection I would leave them alone in case in the future you decide to do so.

EAP Extensible Authentication Protocol, or EAP, is a universal authentication framework frequently used in wireless networks

EAP-FAST I believe is same as above but supposedly more secure

PEAP[/b] (pronounced "peep"), is a method to securely transmit authentication information, including passwords, over wired or wireless networks

You don't tell us anything about your system but I assume you have a wireless connection?

Yes, you do need them!

Do not under any circumstances delete them.

This is an HP computer? It allows you to watch TV from your computer or portable devices such as laptops or cellphones. QuickPlay SlingPlayer is already pre-installed on all HP QuickPlay-enabled notebooks.
