No, that did not help.

There is a Startup file and a Startup Applications file.  Neither one of these list the HP Audio Switch. 

Your "tools to enjoy" are instrusive and border on malware.  

Have you noticed the long list on Google looking for ways to remove this crap so we can get back to work?
