Re: Uninstall and reinstall HP Photosmart Essentials

1. Try going to Contol Panel and click on Programs and Features. Remove or Uninstall HP Photosmart Essential from there.

2. Download Photosmart Essentials from this link: http://www.hp.com/united-states/consumer/digital_photography/free/software/index.html?jumpid=reg_R10...

Re: Uninstall and reinstall HP Photosmart Essentials

I do not have the CD of my HP Photosmart  printer (1315. ) My photo program by HP messed up in my PC so deleted it . Now this new program only works with that softwear. So can't use photo creation.  What can I do?

Re: Uninstall and reinstall HP Photosmart Essentials

I tried your solution and it worked out fine. But I had to install the HP Photosmart Essentials 3.5 first and then
uninstallt from the Control Panel and restart the computer.
On HP web page I found a link to HP Photo Creations where I could download the program free o charge, Thanks för your advice

Uninstall and reinstall HP Photosmart Essentials

Is your printer the 4400 series photo smart or the deskjet? Here is a link if the printer is a Deskjet:

I can't unistall photo essentials. I installed Microsoft Mr. Fix It, said it was unistalled, it isn't. I rebooted oc afterwards but it's still installed.

Re: Uninstall and reinstall HP Photosmart Essentials

No, my printer is HP Photosmart Pro B8350, but I don't use HP Photosmart Essentials. I use Adobe Photoshop Essentials 10 that works fine. My printer is now working but sometimes it is blocked in a print queue and no prints are comiing out. Sometimes it helps by restarting the computer, but it is unceratain. What can I do to assure a reliable printing function?
