    I have picked this up from another site -

    Based upon HP's own description from here - "With the My HP Center, consumers have access directly from the desktop to Internet sites featuring special offers for HP customers ranging from personal finance and shopping to digital imaging and music" I have classified this as adware.

    Personally, if your Firewall is shutting it out, great. From the above it would imply that you have the opportunity to purchase all sorts of special goodies at special prices. :wink: Presumably, this is because you are a highly-valued customer of HP. I'm certain there is NOTHING in it for HP. :P Regards.
    I know everything about nothing, nothing about everything and precious little about the bit in between.
