Updates from HP agent

I have a new HP, but I've been having problems with a program that always seems to be running. The "Updates from HP agent" is always running in my applications (Windows task manager), but I don't know what this is or how to get it to not run automatically. It seems to slow down my computer and even interfers with me shutting down the computer - it doesn't want to shut down because the program is running. I have already tried a number of things to no avail. I have gone into HP software update | settings and turned off "automatically check for updates", but this did not do the trick. Any help from anyone?

Sorry, I don't have the answer. I have the same issue and the same question. If you find a solution, I'd sure like to know too please.

Re: Updates from HP agent

Try doing a simple: Start | All Programs | Startup, select "Updates from HP" (or something like that) and right click to delete.

Re: Updates from HP agent

I followed Judy's advice (above) and it seems to have made the problem go away (or buried it). Thank you, Judy.
