Going Crazy as HP Digital Media Archive keeps popping up on my screen. It asks for a disc to be loaded. First I have no such disc nor do I want the program. Found it under program files and tried to delete but will not delete. When I tell it to cancel, it goes away for about 20 seconds and then it is there again. Anyone have a solution? I love my HP and this is my fourth. Never any other problems.

What is HP DigitalMedia Archive?
The only way I have found to stop this is the old fashioned ctl-alt-del and then End Task, OK when I am told it is nonresponsive. DigitalMedia Archive closes but still stays on the Task Manager which I then close with the X.

My HP Pavillion computer keeps popping up with box titled "HP DigitalMedia Archive" looking for a file titled EZARC.msi. I have no idea what this or how to fix it. The address is supposed to be "c\hp\tmp\src\EZARC.msi". There is no such address on my machine. I don't know if there is a connection, at around the same time, I've become unable to open emails from my MSN account. ???

I've been having the exact same problem, and the proposed fix (with link) does not work.
This is EXTREMELY frustrating! This problem brings my computer to a screeching halt and is preventing me from updating other important software that I use.
Please suggest other alternatives for fixing this problem.
Thanks in advance for your help and cooperation.
