It's probably part of some system maintenance utilities that HP 
includes, and you're best off leaving it alone.  There's a note in the 
Python FAQ at that mentions this sort of thing in case 
you're interested.

Besides, as this is a new computer, it's very likely that the disk space 
being taken up by Python is a small fraction of one percent of the 
total, and you're really not gaining anything significant by doing this. 
  It ain't broke, so don't "fix" it.
