Vista Service Pack 2
In the past it was just select Print in any program and printer worked. I just started having problems where it wouldn't print. Item would sit in printer, even after deleting. Then I noticed that every time printer was turned on the Vista system searched and loaded software for printer and I believe I saw it loaded all software associated with it - imaging programs and such.

Any thoughts where to start on this one?

First try uninstalling the printer driver then re-installing it from the HP CD supplied with the printer.
Make sure you follow the driver installation instructions, as with many USB printers the printer must be turned off when you start the driver installation, and only turn it on when prompted to do so. As I've never installed an HP printer that may not apply in your case, but do check the instructions.

Also make sure none of the ink cartridges are empty. Most printers will not print at all, even if only one cartridge is empty.

Thank you for the suggestions.

However, I'm not really that familiar with all procedures and try hard to not exceed what I understand so I don't create new problems.

I have Vista Basic 32 bit. Thru Add/Remove I removed the HP printer icons. I want to make sure I remove it all before I try to reinstall.
