How to Remove HP Software

HP Software consists of a series of programs installed by default on Hewlett Packard Windows based computers. They include drivers, imaging devices, printer software and more. Many of these programs launch automatically at computer startup and use system resources. If you do not use any of them, you can remove the applications without damaging system components. This process can either be accomplished from the Control Panel or using the removal tool.
