How do I disable Intel Active Management

Elitebook 850
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)


I have found the Intel Management Engine BIOS Extension, where I assume I can turn off the Intel Active Management. But there is a password. I guess some of the HP support guys entered a password at some point in time, the computer has been repaired once or twice during the 3-year onsite repair deal. Now this has expired though, and after I recently updated the bios, there has been a reset done.  Now the intels message pops up every time I connect to a new wifi-network, asking if it should remember this network. Irritating. 

So I guess I wonder how I can get the password to enter the intel management engine and disable this feature. Or just turn it off in windows somehow.

Any clues?
