I've been experiencing various hitches & glitches on my desktop (IE 8, Windows XP)- and instinct, specific error messages, and other factors, told me my HP printer might have something to do with the problem, and this lead to my uninstalling it.

However out of interest I searched the system for 'HP' and came up with pages and pages of results.

How can this be? I have no other HP applications to my knowledge.
Also, why are some of the entries in blue?

I'm attaching print screens of the first few pages of results for the attention of anyone who's at all interested, and who might be able to advise me.

Thank you in advance. Kat.

Like most programs when you unsinstall something it always leave lots of files on your computer so it is normal that you have some.

But looking at your printscreens you will notice that a lot of the files your mentionning are in the driver cache folders which is normal since Windows XP already comes with lots of drivers for lots of different HP printers. You also have files in your serach that have nothing to do with HP it is just that you have the letter hp in them

So I would not touch anything in the driver cache if I was you or anything that is from service packs ect.

You can delete manually the ones in your Program Files folder if you want.

Thank you very much for that.

I'll leave it all alone then!
