Greetings fourelms and Welcome to the Forums,

Please read Here for a detailed explanation of the process "hpsysdrv.exe".

May I ask, why you are runnign Rkill everytime you reboot? The tool was created for a specific purpose and isn't really something that one would need to run haphazardly, nor on a scheduled basis as you seem to be doing. Are you having issues with your system?
