Running a healthy laptop is essential, but some users reported Unable to deserialize super secret file hashes error. This issues can lead to crashes and the infamous BSOD, and is closely related to HP Active Health software. However, we have a few solutions for you.
I somehow ended up reading events on my computer in the Event Viewer, by the way I have an HP Omen and Windows 10 which I am not using at the moment, but that is the one that has the Event 80 on it. Anyhow, I came across this one Event that totally has me tripping. The wording is crazy and I have no idea what it means. I’m hoping someone can tell me what it means and if I’m tripping for no reason or if I have a good reason to be tripping! I was in Event Viewer>Administrative Events>(of which there were 2,284 events)>Error>Event 80>HP Active Health. Under the General tab it said”SECURITY WARNING-Unable to deserialize super secret file hashes. Will assume evil is afoot- all Validate 0 calls will return DOESNT_MATCH at HP. Active Health. Commons. Security. Hash Store. Loadhashesfromfile0″
