Re: What is HP E for windows 10

Hi @sherby


Welcome to the HP Forums!


Thank you for posting your query in this forum, it's a great place to find answers.


I reviewed your post and I understand that you want to know what is ESU and whether you need it.


I’d love to help!


ESU stand for Essential System Updates, HP ESU for Microsoft Windows 10 is a program developed by Hewlett-Packard. The most used version is 1.0.1, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. The setup package is about 1.57 MB (1,646,592 bytes) when downloaded.


If you have this software installed on your computer it will install all the essential updates for your computer. Alternately, you can also download and install HP support assistant and this will automatically download and install drivers and software updates.


Hope this answers your question and you have a great holiday season.

Re: What is HP E for windows 10

My ESU has been crashing every day for the last week. Perfomance wise, the computer doesn't seem to care and appears to be working just fine.


Did a google search and found this fourm.


I had recently installed a HP 1102W printer, which is working just fine as well.


I am running windows 10 and wondering how I can avoid this crash from continueing every day?
