What's up with the security question? The first thing I'm asked is "What was the telephone number you grew up with". Well, I'm not about to answer that! My step-dad still uses that number and would not be very kind to anyone he doesn't know who happens to call. How do I get a different question??
If any HP employee actually called that number they would deserve the richest tongue lashing your step-dad could deliver.
There would be absolutely no reason to call it, though. Very few of us would know who has that number at this time. I wouldn't worry about it.
I'm very very very unwilling to give out that type of personal info. Maybe I could make one up....(didn't think about that! lol)
Or maybe not. It said it was incorrect. (not a made up number either, just not mine)
If you are answering it that means you have already given it when you set up the security. You will either have to answer correctly and then re-set to another question or go through HP.
I went back & got a different question. All done!

Based on recent experience, I am guessing that the Security Questions are case-sensitive, at the very least. Unfortunately, there seem to be some other issues related to the punctuation of the answers. That is,...
