My HP Games

What is My HP Games?

My HP Games is the Hewlett-Packard branded version of the WildTangent game center that is pre-installed with many HP PCs. During pre-install it includes several WT games already loaded on to the PC for instant trial play. If you do not play WildTangent games or do not wish to use the trail versions you may uninstall this software.


It is typically pre-installed with most new Hewlett-Packard computers. The most common release is, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. 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 setup package generally installs about 122 files and is usually about 3.64 MB (3,812,186 bytes).

This program is pre-installed on the PC

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.
