What is HP Advisor?

I have an HP Desk Top that I bought 7/21/07. I have HP advisor on it. What is this? I never paid much mind to it. I googled it today and I get all this stuff about it being a security thing. I have Norton as my antivirus/antispyware and fire wall. I have Vista Home premium with Vista Service package 1

 

HP advisor isn't an antivirus or firewall is it?

 

Can HP advisor run without issue when one uses Norton Antivirus?

HP Advisor is a program to check your pc's health,drivers,etc.Not a firewall or anti-virus. Usually a quite 'buggy' app in my experience.Smiley Sad

Re: What is HP Advisor?

Why is the HP Total Care Advisor NOT working? This is the pop-up window I get: 'HP Advisor has stopped working A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.'
