How to Uninstall HP Touchpoint Manager from Windows

HP has recently been installing some bloatware called the “HP Touchpoint Manager” on their user’s laptops. This is a collection of a few applications and services which run in the background of your laptop essentially consuming resources and subsequently, the battery life.

According to the Touchpoint website, the software aims to be a remote management tool. This essentially means that they are personal sending data out from your device to their servers.

Whether this data will be used for analytics or something else is yet to be seen because HP hasn’t officially given out a statement about this.

Apart from being simply an annoyance, stuff like this increases your CPU, network and memory usage significantly. If you have got a cheap low-end laptop on your hand, this will cause a lot of frustrations.

In this post, let us see how you can uninstall the HP Telemetry Bloatware from your laptop with ease.

Uninstall the HP Touchpoint Analytics Client from Windows

  • Press Windows + R to open the Run box. Type appwiz.cpl and press Enter. This will open the Programs and Features window. From there you can see a list of all the installed programs and apps on your PC.
  • Look for HP Touchpoint Analytics Client. Right-click on it and select Uninstall/Change. Proceed with the uninstallation.
  • You’ll probably need to restart your PC/laptop for the full removal. Do that and you are done.

Now, since this is quite a new thing, we don’t know for certain that they might try to reinstall this crapware in the background again. Time will tell, though.

  1. Thank you. Apparently this spyware has been installed on my Windows 10 laptop since 2017, but it was only recently, last night in fact, that my computer stopped responding to any of my commands. I checked task manager and found that over %90 of my cpu was being used by something called HP Touchpoint Analytics Client. This thing had been running since yesterday and was still running the next day after stopping and restarting my computer the next morning. I have no idea what set it off.
    I killed it in task manager and immediately my computer’s actions went back to normal. I uninstalled it with Revo Uninstaller to remove all vestiges of the offending bloatware/crapware/spyware…whatever it is.
    So, thank you very much.
