    Whew! It's a relief to know there's no skullduggery going on here. I have an HP, too, and I was beginning to worry.

    We don't know what HP is collecting and it's just another useless service we are better off without.

    Could you educate me a bit on exactly how that works?
    I have no idea but the TA service is certainly installed without a matching program to remove,

    That doesn't work since the TA service is installed without having a listed program to remove.
    But won't it work to disable the service and delete the files in Program Files that the service calls?

    That's what I do as posted above.

    Sorry. Forgot. That was more than 24 hours ago and on another page. I can barely remember what I had for dinner last night. When you get as old as I am, you'll find out what fun it is to get as old as I am.

    First off there is nothing being secretly installed by Microsoft nor HP on your comouter. See this about uninstalling Tocuhpoint. Analytics can be updated by Microsoft and OEM’s for fixes. Analytics just collect hardware info and nothing more. https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c04163604
    The instructions in the address, above, tell you to go to “Control Panel”, find the program and delete it. HPTouchpointAnalytics are not listed, It looks to me like HP knows my computer address and every now and then dumps all this junk on my hard drive. I watch for this with “Hitman Pro” and delete the files when they are detected. I would like to block them, but don’t know how. When HP downloads all this junk, there are nearly 150 files.
