I am on the latest version of Windows 10.  I was somehow able to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 a few years ago with HP ProtectTools installed.  Now I am trying to uninstall it.  It is version 5.03.635.  I get an error 1001 while trying to remove it.  I believe I have deleted all of the other dependent applications.  I removed the disk encryption and anti theft applications, those are the only ones I could find.  Does anyone have any idea what error 1001 means?
