I can't delete a message from HP support assistant with the methods I have read about

HP Recommended
hp printer 8610

When I go into hp support assistant and click on my printer, there is a message that I can't delete. It says "Find HP Authorized Service Centers near you for your Printers!"

it is faded and I can neither press remind me later or delete and move to Action Log. I can't read it either. I tried removing my printer and adding it back on to remove the message, but it stayed there. Can someone help me dismiss it? It has a yellow exclamation mark if that helps at all.

Welcome to the HP Support Community.

 

Uninstall the HP Support Assistant and reinstall it.

 

Let me know if this helps.

Let's try to do a root uninstall and reinstall of the software:

 

Unplug any USB cable, if any, before doing this.

 

1.) In Windows, search for and open Programs and features

2.) Select your HP Printer

3.) Select Uninstall

4.) In Windows, search for and open Devices and printers

5.) In the Devices and Printers windows look for your HP printer. If you see it listed right-click on it and choose 'Delete' or 'Remove Device'

6.) Open up the run command with the "Windows key + R" key combo.

7.) Type printui.exe /s and click Ok. (Note: there is a space in between “printui.exe” and “/s”)

8.) Click on the "Drivers" tab

9.) Look for HP Printer driver. If you see it Click on it and click Remove at the bottom

10.) Select Ok

11.) Select Apply and Ok on the Print Server Properties windows

12.) Close Devices and Printers

13.) Open up the run command with the "Windows key + R" key combo

14.) Type c:/programdata and click Ok. Go to Hewlett Packard folder, remove any printer related folders & files.

15.) Restart the computer.

 

Once done, please download and install the software from here:
