What is OMEN Background Process? After I updated the latest BIOs that HP is offering, this app in on my Windows 11 Taskbar and it won't allow me to get rid of it from my taskbar, even if I right click it and choose "Close All Windows". I don't game so is there away for me to get rid of it from my taskbar?

hi

is this a pinned program, or an already open program that you have?
It can be one of many Hp programs, like omen hub
If you open it, does it work?

On windows 11 if it's a pinned program, and you go to it, then right click, you should have 'unpin from taskbar'

I can't unpin it from the Taskbar, though I try to do it.

W_VanSp_0-1651928240138.png Here it is on my taskbar. I can't close it or get it off my taskbar.  I click on "Close all windows and it's still there. Also has the shortline under it that says it's a program that is open. Can't close it out.

So that seems to me to be what I told you above.
if the program is closed
click unpin from taskbar
"Close all windows" is just used to close the windows that appear on the desktop

If that does not work, open the task manager, and force stop the software before

Same is occuring on Windows 10 too. It seems like it's last Omen Gaming Hub update has issue since it's Omen background process that should be hidden from user.

go to seach, type task manager, open the task manager. you will see all the program running . check Omen gaming hub or anything omen. right and choose end task
