It slows down your PC considerably by consuming a lot of memory. While you might not see it all the time, a sudden jump in memory consumption by the program creates a huge problem with the PC. It seems that HP Touchpoint Analytics Client was installed on the computers without consent. It should have been installed in the background as an update to Hp support or framework.
The application can start and stop numerous applications; its client service and installer, console window host, command prompts, timeout-pause command prompt, and so on. Some even report that it caused Antimalware service executable to run now, and then, followed by driver installation which kept failing.
