My HP Advisor application is totally worthless...everytime I click on any button it throws an error message that the ".../user.config" is read only or hidden and can't be open.
On top of this, my entire Accessories suite seems to have vanished although I was using the calculator last week.
Anyone else similar under-whelmed by this HP experience...I thought I had moved beyond Dell!!.
Aloha from screwy Hawaii.

The application must have not installed correctly before you got it. I am not sure if HP Advisor is in application recovery, but you can try reinstalling the app. I suggest uninstalling it then reinstalling it. Also, HP Advisor takes lots of resources if you want to keep using it.

Has Advisor always been like this? Did something happen before it started acting this way? Did this happen at the same time as your Accessories vanishing?
This could be related some kind of virus or file corruption, or maybe a Windows Update caused a problem...I'm just trying to help figure out what went wrong. If it used to work but now doesn't, you could try running a System Restore to roll back to a time when the PC was working properly.

Question 1. HP Advisor was always DOA...never worked, but didn't need it until my Accessories vanished.
Question 2. I've not had many virus alerts, running subscription McAfee, but will check out a system rollback.
Thanks for checking in...as noted above, probably the Advisor install never got right on this machine.
