What is hpcee.exe?

Greetings,

 

I have an item in the Task Schedular that points to:

 

C:\Program Files (x86)\Hewlett-Packard\HP Ceement\HPCEE.exe

 

Does anyone know what HPCEE.exe is? Or what it does?

 

Thanks,

Shane.

Hi,

 

After Googling I can only see this note is acceptable.

HP Ceement stands for Hewlett Packard Customer Experience Enhancement. CEEment (HPCEE.exe) is the reporting tool that HP uses to collect and study anonymous data. You can activate CEEment when you set up your computer. Or, you can activate using HP Advisor or HP Support Assistant at any time.

 

Some of the data reported using CEEment includes your model number, OS, region, locale, and BIOS version. If you wish to know specifically which data was collected, launch HP Support Assistant. Click Settings , scroll down to the bottom of the Health Analysis tab, and then click View information collected by HP .

 

To disable HP Ceement (HPCee.exe), change all the zeros to ones (0 to 1)  in the Ceement.ini file, then reboot.


Users must have WRITE privileges to Ceement.ini file.

Check all these locations for Ceement.ini:

 

If older version of HP Ceement (e.g. 6.0.1.3)

C:\ProgramData\Hewlett-Packard\HP Ceement\Ceement.ini

If older version of HP Ceement (e.g. 5.7.0.3036)

C:\ProgramData\Hewlett-Packard\SDP\Ceement\Ceement.ini


If older version of HP Ceement (e.g. Ceement 5.7.0.2630)

C:\Program Files (x86)\Hewlett-Packard\SDP\Ceement.ini

C:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\SDP\Ceement.ini

 

; Section header

[CEEment]
Enabled=0
CEEmentOptin=0
Track=0
UUIDRegKey=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Hewlett-Packard\System Properties
UUIDRegName=UUID
LogPath=cee


 Also, make sure you delete the Schedule Tasks for HPCee.exe
