The program is not essential and it can be uninstalled through "Uninstall a program" in Control Panel.

I also recommend uninstalling it since it causes more bad than good.
Many times it says not responding.
There's no other way to Reinstall it except by running a Recovery.
But you can uninstall it at any time.

Thank you, Thank you and Thank you.
I have wrestled with HP TCA and the recommended critical updates (especially to the BIOS) on 3 different occasions.
The 1st time I had a tech rep from HP helping me, over the phone.
Each time, I spent well over 6 hours of SERIOUS wrestling!!!!!!! Errrrrrr.
I just finished my last 6 hour battle with this program. It is 1:00 am EST. I started when I got home from work....
Nothing downloaded correctly, nothing installed correctly, I still have 9 critical problems, nothing I tweek helps, my mouse locks up every 10 minutes while working on this, I have rebooted 20 times.
I really don't need this.
Thanks for the info. I feel better already. I am finished! Done!
Thank You, really.....

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

I'm also getting the pop up message, that hp advisor has stopped working/windows will close and notify you of a solution. What?????
Recently the hp recovery manager completed a factory restore to my computer, everything wiped out, all software, long process to restore. Could this be the problem??? Or should I just not worry about the hp advisor being enabled/disabled???

I had the same problem and downloaded a newer HP Advisor and so far its working. It took a long time to install but eventually it did. I got the newest (at this time) here
