    HP Advisor which is a decent tool when you know how to use it. For many it is a pain. My question is "When does HP Advisor no longer provide useful updates to a notebook or desktop." I have noticed on some that there have been no new updates for several years. My point is how to tell when it no longer serves a purpose and can be removed from a system? If it is no longer useful we might as well remove it to clear up disk space, to free up resources and improve overall performance on an older system to help prolong it's life. My guess right now is sometime around 3 years old but cautious even then. Could it be earlier? Or later? Any knowledgeable people out there with maybe some definitive info?
    Thanks.

    Ive always removed it immediately....never found it useful. It is shipped with a new rig but is mated to that hardware and in a factory condition. After 3 years pretty sure you can dump it.
