I bought a HP Stream 11 for my daughter knowing it was limited in performance. But when I check the CPU it is being over run by something called HP Tools. Will my computer crash if I shut down the service? Can I completely remove it from my computer to speed up the internet connection?
Removing HP Tools From A HP Stream 11
The HP Tools that you see running on your computer is part of the HP Support Assistant Software which I guess is included or preinstalled with the laptop. It is actually an optional program and you can remove it if you have no use for it or it makes your machine perform slowly.
In this case, uninstalling the software or the tool is necessary and will not make an impact on the computer. Just make sure you are uninstalling an HP program that is not used for a particular device like the card reader. Most of the HP applications included in the laptop are for diagnostics and utilities which sometimes are not needed.
The HP Stream Notebook – 11-d010nr [ENERGY STAR] runs or is preinstalled with 64-bit Microsoft Windows 8.1. There is no problem in case you uninstalled the wrong application because you can always download all the drivers and software from the HP support website. If something goes wrong after uninstalling the software, just visit HP Stream Notebook 11 Drivers and then download the program or driver again.
The HP applications on your laptop are all optional. There’s no need to install them if you think you don’t need it. The applications are only used for support in case a problem is detected on the machine.
