Why can't conflict between PRE10 and HP fingerprint reader be resolved?

There's a conflict between the HP fingerprint reader software, HP SimplePass Identify Protection, and Premier Elements 10. PRE 10 Transitions will not load when the fingerprint reader software is enabled. Therefore, I have to disable Authentications in msconfig every time I use Premier Elements. It's inconvenient and there should be a better solution.

You probably need to ask HP why their driver software conflicts with applications (when it should not).

Also, you probably want to leave that disabled: fingerprint readers are grossly insecure (and now being left off of most laptops because they're useless).
