Hi all,

Maybe a simple question here, I have a Packard Bell pc 6 weeks old and I have noticed HP Updater and hpsu360stub are running.
The strange thing is I do not have an HP printer or ever had on on this pc.
Has it come down with a vista security update on perhaps it was pre installed on the pc?
Anyway, is it safe to uninstall them?
