IS there any plans on preventing hp protect tools from taking over the boot screen of eecp? We have many hp systems and it seems that autoupdaters will prompt users to install updated hp protect tools suite. This in turn sees the drive is encrypted and used hp protect tools boot screen. The only way to fix this is to emergency boot decrypt the drive, remove hp protect tools and reencrpyt.Message was edited by: Ex_Brit on 20/01/11 9:13:58 EST PM
I understand this, but the HP product is the safeboot product. It uses Safeboot but bundles it as a hp product which is why if a machine is encrypted with mcafee, mcafee doesnt protect itself from HP's product sicne they are the same and is allowed to take over the management of the corporate version.
It's a common misconception - but the HP product is not "SafeBoot" - it has a specification controlled by HP. Yes, the two come from the same parent, but they are not the same, and as I say, the functionality and features are dictated to meet the needs of HP.
