Remove HP System Diagnostics UEFI

I installed HP System Diagnostics UEFI (SP52407) on my Elitebook 8530p running Windows 7 enterprise 64-bit.

I wish to uninstall this program if possible as it is making my System Image backups fail.

The new partion created by this program is FAT 32 and Windows 7 will not back it up, only NTFS.

When I click on create new system image it says the following drives will be backed up:

(C:smileyhappy: (System)

HP_tools (F:smileyhappy: (System)  with no option to remove this.  And if I chose my own backup same thing.


So can I uninstall it somehow? (does not show up in Programs) or should I just delet the partion?  Not sure that will help either.

That's how Windows7 backup functions.  There are many backup tools that work better.  Try Macrium Reflect.
