Re: How to disable Recovery Manager Hotkey combination i.e. Ctrl + Alt + R

Disabling HP Message Service (kill the process in Task Manager, and also disable it in the Startup tab of the Task Manager) seems to have stopped this.  Idk if it was doing anything else useful, but I'm not noticing anything right away so my plan for now is to leave it off and return to enjoying my regularly scheduled ctrl-alt-R functionality.

I too am plagued by this nasty "hotkey" that cannot be stopped. I've tried deleting the windows shortcut hotkey (wasn't there anyway), and the above solution of stopping the HP service, but to no avail. I've tried to uninstall the HP recovery software, but it ignores my request, like a virus.

 

HP--please tell us how to get CTRL-ALT-R to stop launching your recover software. It's just plain rude.

I figured it out! All i did was uninstall all the HP support things, and it went away. Never used them anyways and it stopped the hotkey from opening up in After Effects. Woo!
