Hi jolemac -
The dj_sf software is part of your printer driver that you do not need, So could you download and run the Windows Installer Clean Up utility http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301 once you have it installed run it and youshould see the dj_sf listed, just uninstall it then reboot your machine and see if you still have the issue.
Usually related to H/P units
Thank You
EDIT -
Is this causing any problems ? ?

I am not able to access the internet as this dj_sf_.software error message seems to block this happening .I tried to uninstall my HP printer and it wouldn't allow me to do so it kept saying that it us in use by administrator. What do I do now?

Hi
Download TFC Cleaner from HERE , once opened, click Start and let the tool clean un-needed files (mainly Temp files), and reboot after it is finished.
Now turn the printer off and unplug it from your computer first.
Make sure that you are logged on to the Admin account when you try to uninstall the printer.
Now try it again

Thank You

Next step is we put it to the experts in their area - -

If the above will not work I suggest you read the 'Start Here' topic found HERE. With these self-help tools you have a high chance of fixing the problems on your own. If you are still having problems after following Step 3 of the guide, continue with Step 4 and 5 and post in the Malware Forum (http://www.geekstogo...emoval-f37.html). If you are unable to run any programs, Please create a topic stating what you have tried so far and that you are unable to run any programs. Also, Please do NOT post the logs in this thread.

If you are still having issues after the malware expert gives you a clean bill of health, Please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
Add a link to this topic so that malware tech can see what steps have been taken here

try running the hp printer install cd again

Good idea if you have the install CD still .
I would try to Uninstall the printer first from Add / Remove or from any built in uninstaller , then try to reinstall second .

Thank You

Hello I've tried all that you've told me to things are now working fine thank you for your time :) except for two things. When ever I click on the internet icon it doesn't load up, I have to be using an icon called safari. Do not know how that appeared there and also loading up is extremely slow. Any advice?

My PC is Windows XP
Version 2002
Service Pack 3
Inter®
Pentium® 4 CPU 1.50GHZ
256mb of RAM
Make Packard Bell

I didn't find any topics for you in the malware forum. You should really get a clean bill of health from them.

Anyways, if you truely have only 256mb of ram.....that is way to low. XP needs at least a minimum of 1gb.

Go to HERE and run the Crucial online scanner.
This will give you the exact memory configuration for your system. You do not have to buy the memory from there, but write down the information and if you need assistance in purchasing the upgrade memory GTG can assist with suggestions also.
