Omen

Hi I am trying to disable the Omen Gaming Hub.  In Windows Setting > Apps > Startup: I turned off "Omen Gaming Hub Background" however when I rebooted my machine it still started up anyways (and I hadn't accidentally hit the Omen key yet).

There was a thread about something similar here: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Gaming-Desktops/Can-t-remove-HP-Omen-Gaming-Hub-from-System-Tray/m-p/8...

But I cannot find the options for the answer HP support gave.  They said:

To disable the HP Omen Gaming Huband interests widget, use these steps:

1 - Right-click the taskbar.
2 - Select the HP Omen Gaming Hub and interests menu.
3 - Check the Turn off option to disable the feature.
4 - (Optional) Clear the Turn off option to enable the feature.
5 - Once you complete the steps, the news and interests taskbar widget will be permanently disabled on Windows 10.

 

However, when I right click the taskbar there is no option to "Select the HP Omen Gaming Hub and interests menu." The only option is "Taskbar Settings."

How do I disable this?

Also, even when I terminate the Omen Gaming Hub from start menu >> search "Omen Gaming Hub" >> App settings >> Terminate

There is still a process running called OmenCap.exe that is using 3.2 MB

What is that?  If it isn't related to improving my machine's performance, how do I terminate it?
