Uninstall / Deactivate HP WorkWell

HP Recommended
Elite Dragonfly
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi

 

Is there a way to permanently uninstall/remove or deactivate HP WorkWell on an Elite Dragonfly product?

Our users are constantly asked to register with HP WorkWell via pop-up.

There doesn't seem to be an option in the control panel to uninstall HP WorkWell.

We don't want to force our business users to register with this service.

The constant reminders are not very user friendly.

 

Alternatively: is there a way to permanently disable said pop-ups?

 

Kind regards,

Benjamin

HP WorkWell is an application.

 

Settings > Apps > Apps and Features

Scroll or search for HP workwell

The application can be uninstalled and / or managed for activities in the Advanced Options menu.

 

I would guess that once the application is removed, the related pop-ups should stop, too.

You are welcome.

I don't have an alternate answer.

 

Wiggly and useless thoughts on the subject...

 

Might check in Startup - some piece of this application might be hanging out. 

Really, though, I would expect errors and not messages were this the case.

 

Right-Click on Taskbar > Task Manager > Startup

 

As to the constant notifications, I have pretty much all Windows notifications switched off.

Honestly, with notifications switched off, I don't see anything except the occasional blather from Opera when it sneaks back into the Task Bar bin on a Probook that is running Windows 2004.  I'll deal with that eventually if it bugs me enough to bother with it...

 

Settings > System > Notifications & actions

"Get notifications from apps and other senders" = OFF

 

If I see anything I think is related, I'll post back.

Thanks for your follow up. Removing it from the Startup would require it to show up as HP WorkWell or similar in the Startup Menu, which it doesn't. Disabling notifications is an intersting approach, however, since it's a system tray message, it shouldn't be affected. I think we might just have to register and close the app / set it to dnd. Thanks again for your help.

Well, I agree it is not as nice as being able to just shut it down, get rid of it cleanly, "make it stop".

Some of this stuff is integrated to the point where it has "rules" about what you can do with it - or "to" it.

 

Also, keep an eye out - I might have missed something.

 

Stay Safe.
