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 www.python.org that mentions this sort of thing in case
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.
