hpqtra08.exe is installed alongside the drivers for Hewlett Packard Imaging devices and installs an easy-to-use traybar icon for quick access to diagnostics. This is a non-essential process.Disabling or enabling it is down to user preference.
If this solution isn't acceptable, then disable the Windows Image Aquisition service (run DCOMCNFG.EXE, disable WIA from Services) it'll resolve the problem.
