HP Protect DLL unsigned? (virtualbox hardening issue)

HP Recommended
ZBook Firefly
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I had installed VirtualBox which was working fine. Then installed HP security tools. VBox now refuses to start with the following message in its VBoxHardening.log

 

2160.4ab4: supR3HardenedScreenImage/LdrLoadDll: cache hit (Unknown Status -23021 (0xffffa613)) on \Device\HarddiskVolume3\Program Files\HP\HP ProtectTools Security Manager\Bin\DpOFeedb.dll [lacks WinVerifyTrust]

More info on the hardening process is at  https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=82106. It seems to imply VBox thinks that this DLL isn't signed properly. This would be quite weird for a security tool of course.

 

I probably will need to remove the HP ProtectTools, but that doesn't seem to be trivial (and is also a pity). Anyone knows more about this?
