Should I uninstall HP advisor and HP support assistant?

Hi, I was wondering if i should uninstall these programs. I don't use them at all and I probably won't ever use them.

Thanks,

Hello Rick99.

I'm not so sure about those two programs, but whatever you do, do NOT uninstall the HP Wireless Assistant.

Quite a number of folk on this forum had problems with their WiFi until they re-enabled that program again.

One such example:-

I have to say I uninstalled the HP wireless assistant sometime before I posted this. I don't have any problems that I've noticed. It didn't hurt anything. Thanks for your concern, though. Also, the other HP programs, from what I understand, won't help me at all.

Thanks,
