I just received my new hp x360 13.3. I bought a usb c hub. I know this is not an HP. I just want to remove this message "HP recommends using an original power adapter from HP" every time. I saw some old post to remove some filename. This post was for windows 7. I would like to know on W10, how to remove this message?

Hi! @paulkho, Welcome to HP forums.
I understand that you need to know how to remove adapter pop up from your PC.
Don't worry I will try to help you out.
Did you make any software or hardware changes to your PC?
Please try the steps recommended below.
This could be your Hp support assistant which is giving you pop ups every now and then
You can go HP Support assistant go to settings
Uncheck the boxes- chose how you would like to be notified.
Click save and exit
If the issue persists, Try the steps recommended below.
1- C:\Program Files (x86)\Hewlett-Packard\HP Quick Launch
2- Delete file HP CnbToaster.dll
3- Delete file HPUSRMSG.exe
4- Delete file HP Smart Adapter Help
Let me know if this works!
Have a beautiful day ahead! 🙂

I stopped this window from popping up by renaming the file USBCMSG.exe to USBCMSG.old.exe
Now the HP management software can't find it and render the popup. Just beware that there will probably be other, more useful, messages also disbled. Messages having to do with your USB-C ports, obviously.

1- C:\Program Files (x86)\Hewlett-Packard\HP Quick Launch does not exist on my PC...what are my options now to make this dialog cease and desist?
2-How hard would it be to include a "Don't Show This Message Again" check box such as on many start up screens? Certainly a more friendly solution than the current nagging about the power adaptor!

I found it in C:\Program Files (x86)\HP\HP System Event. I renamed USBCMSG.exe to USBCMSG.exe.old as the above poster said and it fixed it for me.
A good tip: I found the file by opening Task Manager after the popup came up (and while it was still open), and right-clicking on the HP System Information program and then selecting Open File Location.

Two problems with the "power addaptor" dialog. First, it is in-accurate - there is nothing wrong with using third party adaptors now that the standard is being followed - that is the WHOLE point of having USB-C power (and one of the main reeasons I bought HP). Second, if HP want to notify customer of issues then how about make the dialog look something like Windows 10 instead of Windows 3??? Fully agree a nice "don't show that again" check box is a MUST.
