What is hpqwutils.exe?

Part of HP QuickWeb by Hewlett-Packard Company

Description of hpqwutils.exe from Hewlett-Packard Company
HP QuickWeb is an innovative suite of applications that can be accessed within seconds of powering on the notebook. HP QuickWeb resides outside of the notebook’s Windows operating system, allowing you to quickly check e-mail, surf the web, chat via instant messenger and Skype, listen to music, and view pictures. The QuickWeb applications: Pidgen e-mail, Splashtop web browser, Skype, Chat, photo viewer and music player are similar to applications found in the Windows operating environment: web-based e-mail (Gmail, Yahoo Mail), Internet Explorer, Skype, instant messenger, and MediaSmart. However, because the Instant On System (IOS) loads prior to the Windows operating system, the QuickWeb application have to be configured individually. For example, configuring e-mail server settings in Windows does not automatically configure the Instant Web Pidgin e-mail program in QuickWeb.
