HP Support Assistant no longer logs in to may HP account and will not complete searches for updates
There are no issues with my account and I am able to login online and using other services.
When attempting to sign in I receive the following message: "Login failed. Wrong user ID or password or the service is note available."
When attempting to search for updates it completes the first item, "Connecting to HP servers", but then fails on all subsequent items.
The software is also forgetting my preferences and provides a pop-up every time I open it requesting me to choose my update and notification preferences.
The software was working fine until a few weeks ago.
I have already tried:
- Uninstalling and reinstalling the software.
- Restoring my PC to an earlier point. And in combination with reinstalling the software.
- Ensured all latest Windows Updates are installed.
Any help resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated.

@rpik91 I suggest you uninstall the HP Support Assistant, then, restart the device and create a new user account on windows, only to check if you can install the HPSA on the new account and if it works, that way, we could confirm if this is either an issue with the software or if there's a conflict in your system account profile:

Creating a new account did not solve the issue. Can I not reset the account profile in my system (manually if necessary) to remove any conflict if that is the issue?
I have no issue logging in to the profile online.

As per my original post I have already tried uninstalling and reinstalling, and in combination with restarting my laptop. I tried again just incase the software has changed but I am still experiencing the same issues.
As the support assistant software will not function is there a way to download software and operating updates manually from a website?
