HP Device manager issue

A while back I uninstalled HP client security and HP device access manager, ever since I done that I can no longer access USB device such as thumb drives or external hard drives. I tried reinstalling both, client security installs but now won't uninstall... HP device Access Manger errors out during install.

I tried the CMD commands to takeown/icals and it says it can't do that... The drive was able to be seen before removing those HP products. Anyone know of another way to fix this issue?

After months of trying to resolve this found a way by searching on how to fix the install error rather than fix USB access :)

After fixing the install and reinstalling I now have access to USB once more...
