HP Calendar is a software program developed by Hewlett-Packard. It is typically pre-installed with most new Hewlett-Packard computers. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The primary executable is named LifeCenterCalendar.exe. The setup package generally installs about 11 files and is usually about 11.07 MB (11,609,033 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 10. While about 83% of users of HP Calendar come from the United States, it is also popular in Canada and United Kingdom.

This program is pre-installed on some PCs

Pre-installed software such as this is usually included by default on the manufacturer's PC. Many OEM (original equipment manufacture) software that is included with a new PC is useful and in many cases required for the PC to function properly as in the case of various software drivers. However, some pre-installed software is optional and can be safely removed.
