Trying to free some space and I do not know if I can delete this file or what files can I delete such as HP folder which also open apps on task manager which I do not want

Files
Hp files
 
Hiberfil.sys is over 6 gb.

Do you use hibernation? If not, disable it and save that space.

Have you walked through Windows Apps to see what all is installed that you don't need. HP may have installed all kinds of useless garbage you don't need.

How much space do you have devoted to System Restore.....if any?

Yeah thats what I am gonna do but also those HP apps take space in task manager and for some reason even tho deleted everything from MCAfee even used their app to delete all files it still shows up on task manager which I think is because of those HP apps because it was included on it

Turn off System Restore if you don't use it.

Run Disk Cleanup

Type "apps" into a search box and post a picture of your installed applications.

Most garbage apps are small, so don't expect miracles.
When I run Disk Cleanup it only lets me choose C drive or D drive and then shows the useless files basically

With the apps I meanly want to delete as they show up on the task manager and is annoying have to delete them every time I turn on the pc from there, which are like 6 HP apps and 1 MCafee app which I already totally deleted but still showing up in there

You may be loading a bunch of unneeded crap every time you start up when you don't have to.

Look at the startup tab in Task Manager.

How many things are listed?

5?

25?

Windows will start with all of that stuff disabled.

I don't understand "shows the useless files basically".

Did you or didn't you run Disk Clean to completion, including the "system files" option?
Ohhh thats what u meant sorry mb, I thought was looking for a specific thing called ''apps'' and yes I did

The only ones which are enabled are : Avast, Gystation (screenshots), Java, Logitech download assistant, Realtek HD audio universal, Scptool (ds3 app for controllers), steelseries GG (headphones app) , vanguard from valorant and ''windows security notification and thats the only ones which are enabled
