@20178040, Welcome to HP Support Community!


Uninstall the HP Support Assistant-


Control Panel > icon view > Programs and Features >

Scroll down, find, Uninstall the HP Support Assistant

After the uninstall is completed, Restart the computer and log in



The Uninstall will ask you whether to save your personal settings.


In general, you should be able to get away with keeping the settings for your personal HPSA preferences -- "personal" settings include whether you have set "automatic" downloads/install, how you are notified, anything under HPSA "Settings".


At least the first time 'round, let the personal settings stay in place.



Download, save, and install a fresh copy of the software on each computer:

HP Support Assistant


  • If you have ‘Admin’ control, you may highlight the package and “double-click” to install it, else Right-Click, select run as Administrator and install.


Open HPSA on the new computer.


If the program opens > Click About > Check for updates (there should not be any -- at this writing 8.5.x is the latest -- there is no harm in checking) > If there are updates, allow them.


Try to sign in - use the Sign-in you use to get into the forum, for example.


Open HPSA on the "old" computer and repeat the setups/checks



No Joy?  Start Over...


If the installation/setup changes do not work or work other than expected, start over -- remove the HPSA program from Programs and Features.  This time, select to have everything removed (as if you are never going to use the program again).


Repeat the installation steps


Open the program > Settings > set / adjust the program to behave in the manner you prefer.


For example:

  • If you had previously set up HPSA to "notify" as opposed to "automatic" updates, set that option.
  • If you had previously switched off the notifications, check the boxes (if any) to have the program notify you when it finds (or wants to install) updates.
