macOS 11.1 and Photosmart D110a error msg printing and scanning, "File will damage your computer".

HP Photosmart D110a

Just tried to print on my Photosmart D110a and got a this action will damage your computer msg.  It has be a couple of months since I have printed on my printer and figured it was due to my upgrade to macOS 10.5.4.  I followed the steps on the homepage and uninstalled the old drivers.  Then upgraded to macOS 11.1.  I am still not able to find or install the correct drivers for my D110a.  The best I can do is AirPrint, but I can not use the scanner.  It seems that this is a problem bigger than just me, but any help would be appreciated.

Try following below version of the HP Easy Start Utility:


As soon as you open HP Easy Start, click the top HP Easy Start menu and select Uninstall HP Software...
Read any warnings that display, and then click Continue. When prompted, type your administrator user name and password and follow the steps on screen.
Click Set Up New Device, and then follow the instructions to reinstall your printer with HP Easy Start and check if that may work.


If HP Easy Start cannot complete your printer installation, from the HP Easy Start menu select Preferences.
Click on HP Easy Start.log and the log folder will launch, please reply me back via a Private Message with the log content attached, please clarify if you may not able to access private messaging.
