If you have gone to Control Panel > Programs to uninstall a program and found several items there that all have "HP Tools Security Manager" in the Name field, then you can just remove al of them, one at a time. Can you please list the names of these programs?

The request was to give guidance as to how to remove the software that was/is restricting windows 10 from installing onto my Laptop.
Did you give this assistance or just inform of what has to be removed?Everything has a cost- as does our time
Expert:  Joel Kalman replied 1 year ago.

I described how to remove the HP Tools Security Manager software, one item at a time. You expressed concern about doing this, since there were several items. I will be available to assist you whenever you are ready. This question will remain open for about a week, but it can be extended or reopened.
