    Hello, your computer or laptop likely has HP bloatware installed:
    The term "Bloatware" also commonly refers to software preinstalled on a device, usually by the hardware manufacturer, that is mostly unwanted by the purchaser.

    Most of the HP related programs can be removed, in your case this could be HP support assistant:

    As stated, If you have the HP Support Assistant installed, you can Uninstall it in Apps and Features. If you like it and want to keep it:\
    Start (Windows key) > show list of "apps" > scroll down to category "H" >
    Left-Click (Open) Topic "HP Help and Support"
    Optional: Right-Click on HP Support Assistant > Pin to Start (makes the program easy to find in your Start screen)
    Left-Click on (Open) HP Support Assistant
    Wait for the program to open on your computer screen
    Click Settings
    Leave the first option "Enable your PC..." checked / "Yes"
    Section "Choose how you would like to be notified"
    Clear (uncheck) every box.
    Clearing all the boxes has the affect of keeping the HPSA quiet (as in not-bug-your-trip-mode).
    Click Save
