I made a big mistake, on 5-Nov. 2020 HP send notice for upgrading the HP software on my HP ProBook 440 G7 laptop. I hesitated, then relented, and hit install all in HP software dialog. This is not a windows 10 upgrade its HP own upgrade.
Now my machine is useless, it takes nearly an hour to start, I can’t see any online fix. just to add icing on the cake, the HP software that actually manages updating, well that does not run anymore either. It is complete joke.
