Have a HP 8710w Mobile Workstation notebook here, with an Authentec Fingerprint reader built in. Previously it had HP Protect tools on it, which allowed a fingerprint windows login, however it started slowing down a lot, and i think has been formatted by the IT department and the contents refreshed - without HP Protecttools.
Now obviously the thing to do was to download this and put it on, but the fingerprint component is 14mb, then the protecttools program is a whopping 127mb. Im pretty sure this is what caused the slow down because it's running constantly, and seems bloated.
So is there any way to use this Authentec fingerprint reader to login to windows (dont care about other passwords), without this protecttools bloat.
