This happens when you fail to remove the other HP support programs for the printer.
Just go into Control Panel,
1) uninstall a program, and remove all Hp Deskjet programs.
2) in Printers, remove any reference to that printer.
Then run the install CD.
To say THANK YOU, press the "thumbs up symbol" to render a KUDO. Please click Accept as Solution, if your problem is solved. You can render both Solution and KUDO.
The Law of Effect states that positive reinforcement increases the probability of a behavior being repeated. (B.F.Skinner). You toss me KUDO and/or Solution, and I perform better.

Thank you. I uninstalled all hp printing / imaging devices (2 in total), cleaned the registry with CCleaner, downloaded the current driver-set from HP, did a clean/full reinstall. It worked! Thank you!
