Anyway I don't see this as bloatware seeing that it appears to be something to help protect the hard drive should you drop the notebook, I would imagine it'd be something you want.
Perhaps you might look into updating the drivers for it according to the link I provided. Maybe even give HP a call?
Anyway that's all I have to add to this. Good luck.
