How do I get rid of HP Update box in the bottom right of my notebook.  There is nothing at the bottom of my display that I can X it off at.  I have to restart my laptop to get rid of it now?

Hi,

 

Hold down the Windows key and press R.  In to the Run box type msconfig and hit enter.  In the following window, click the Start up tab, remove the tick next to HP Update, then click Apply and Ok.  Restart the notebook for this change to be applied.

 

Regards,

SOmeone tell me how to get rid of this box.

 

Why hasn't HP done something about it?

 

I got a new computer, and now I am stuck with a box that you cannot click on.

 

Help!
