hp 'tuneup' and 'health analysis'

by padyboy / January 3, 2012 4:42 AM PST

I am looking for further information on 'HP Tuneup' and 'Healh Analysis'.
The former was run for 6 hours today without change in screen display. No indication of run time, what was going on, or the results of the 'tuneup'. Thi run time is unacceptable since it monopolizes my computer and I don't know what the beneits are.
I have beeen unable to locate further info on these topics in manual or HP website.
HP Pavilion a4310f, 4GB RAM, 640GB HD, Win 7.
Please help.

This is a question for HP.

While I never found it to be a problem I do read of stories like yours. As HP is the author and more of this thing any guess by me would be just that.

Ask the company that made this one.

Just for drill you can download and run process explorer to give you an overview of system functionality etc. This is offered through MS and is a free download, just a thought.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
