HP Wolf Security causing issue's

Hi,

I'd like to know if anyone else has experienced this yet. I've had 4 customers now with HP Machines that have had issues with there PC performing incredibly slowly (basically unusable), the issue seems to be this new HP Wolf Security Bloatware that HP have pushed out. I believe it's conflicting with the Sophos Agent, I've only seen it happen on machines with Sophos running. As soon as HP Wolf Security is uninstalled the PC returns to normal.

Has anyone else experienced the same thing? It's annoying that HP just push this stuff out and break things.

Thanks

  • Exactly the same issue, we rolled out 20+ new HP x360 and all almost DIED (Unusable) after a few days. We found the same culprit HP WOLF, the moment it gets installed and the system restarts, the laptop become unusable ... anyone knows how to DISABLE the launch of HP WOLF  from Sophos AV and how to prevent this from installing?

  • Best create a windows 10 memory stick and run it on all new HP PCs remove all partitions and a fresh reload of windows, the PC will run much faster and then you can install your corporate software free from additional bloatware.

    I noticed this when a customer purchased an upgraded SSD the reloaded HP PC was so much faster and responsive and now do this to all new HP PC. #TopTip
