    Windows 10 64bit

    Maybe the system is downloading updates? I have seen this on two systems that I installed Win 10 on. Both stopped this activity after Win 10 updated and asked for a reboot.

    The HP Simplepass.exe was continually creating new threads then deleting them but for about 6.
    disabling and stopping had no effect.
    As i don't use the fingerprint option, i uninstalled Simplepass and all stable....

    Windows 8.1, Win10Pro

    There are LOTS of posts on the HP Support forum about Simplepass NOT working with Win10. Don't know if HP is working on an update for Win10 or not. There were similar complaints about HP Support Assistant NOT working with Win10, but HP's put out an upgraded version that now does.
