easy done and you can uninstall everything, than you should enable that account when you are finished

uninstall hp protect tool device access manager to remove HP protect tools security manager

This is all great but when we have installed Windows 10, there are no options to re-install Security Manager and get back the password and finger-print reader functions - I miss them in Windowes 10.

Any ideas?

 

I did install windows 7 security manager onto windows 10 - it worked at first until windos 10 did an upgrade.

 

What is the difference between windows 10 drivers and those from W7, W8 or W8.1?

Is it dangerous to install and use these?

 

I'm using W8.1 Scanner drivers OK in W10!

 

Can anyone answer the W10 driver question?

It looks like this is finally fixed. Download and install HP Client Security Manager (SP74933). 

 

Worked for me.

 

Make a great day.
