Please Help. I recently moved and when I moved I took my computer, but the left the printer that I was running on it, behind for my father.

I uninstalled the printer and programs, or so I thought I did. When I start up stuff about HP still keeps popping up looking to install :)

I would be guessing that it's stuck in my registry.
Even in my Add/Remove programs an HP application is still in there but when I click on Change/Remove nothing at all happens. I've tried a few things, but nothing is working. This is extremely frustrating!

I've actually had to disable any HP stuff in my msconfig-startup.

Please Help!! :) :tazz:
