HP Update

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)



I'm trying to do a recommended update by HP. When it's almost finished a window pops up and tells me I have to decrypt drive encryption to protect my data, or something lol 

I'm new at all this computer stuff and have no clue how to do this. Can anyone please guide me on this matter? I have no clue what drive I'm suppose to decrypt 😞 HELP PLEASE 


Thank you!

Hey there! @kalori_2000


Were there any recent windows updates on the PC?


Please share the product number of the PC to assist you better.


If your disk is currently encrypted by this software, you should first open HP Client Security -> click on Drive Security and follow the on-screen instructions to DECRYPT the HDD. Note that this is generally slow process and may take several hours depending on the amount of your HDD and the PC specifications. 


You may also check if you have pre-boot authentication enabled. Open the HP Client Security home page -> click on the wheel Settings button -> Security Features and check there is no tick next to Power-On Authentication.


Let me know if this works!

Have a great day ahead! 🙂
