On your HP Advisor Dock, locate the drop down list and open the PC Dashboard. Search for Preferences or Settings and click that icon. On that pop-up screen you will find the option to Launch Advisor PC Dock at every boot. Remove the check mark from that option.

Thank you!That was really helpful
Now I just need to figure out how to stop the Norton reminders with no option other than "remind me later" or "next" - they successfully stopped me purchasing their product.

I have a 2009 HP Desktop PC, as well as a 2009 HP Notebook, they have Windows Vista Home Premium, with a 64-Bit Operating System. I am disclosing this because older and newer computers have different operating systems as well as different Windows Versions.
Below are the detailed instructions from a previous Forum member, MIGHTWORK-Student, Posted on 11-25-2010, where I have added Numbers 5, 6, and 9 that are needed with the above mentioned computers:
1. Click the Windows START button
2. In the text box where it says "SEARCH PROGRAM FILES", Type RUN
3. Click on the RUN option, (on top) under the PROGRAMS header
4. When the run box opens, type MSCONFIG
5. Click OK
6. Click CONTINUE
7. Click the tab that says STARTUP
8. Scroll through and find where it says HP ADVISOR. "Uncheck" the box
9. Click APPLY
10. Click OK
10. RESTART your computer
I hope the above instructions will help everyone that has a problem with HP's Dock automatic launching, which is unnecessary and slows up the Startup of a computer.

Tengo instalados varios items de HP que no uso con frecuencia, pero su presencia activa, le restan agilidad a mi equipo, desearía tener un acciòn que permita mantenerlos en suspenso cuando no se usen, sin tener que quitarlos definitivamente, se puede hacer? y como habilito esa posibilidad, por Ej.- HP Advisor,HP Documents, HP Games (No lo uso),HP Power Manager, HP Set up, HP Wirless Assistant, Creo que algunas de estas aplicaciones no las he usado nunca.
