This program was causing massive problems on my computer. It was trying to start every 5 seconds and would cause a 25-50% CPU spike which would freeze everything I was doing. It was to the point that I was about to return my laptop because I couldn't even type a sentence, I would get about 3-5 letters typed, I would still be typing but nothing would come out because it had spiked. Very troublesome program, I can see why HP dropped it.

This is no longer supported by HP. Since they do not support it, we should not trust it.
