Malware? Meh...

Three times in the past week, Microsoft Security Essentials has been flagging "HP Support Assistant" as malware. In a roundabout way, guess I can see that. Most of the crap HP loads on their PCs are useless junk. Never showed up prior to this past week though, so I'm assuming it's a "false positive" on Microsoft's end.

Anywho, uninstalled "HP Support Assistant", since I never use it anyway, just to eliminate those notices.
