HP Envy 4500 software keeps freezes

HP Recommended
HP Envy 4504
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

The control software for HP Envy keeps freezing, I can't get anything printed because I installed used cartridges (which are working fine though). There comes an error message saying the cartridge is not original, but then the software completely freezes, not letting me click yes or no or close it.  Then I have to restart the print spooler, then I try to print and the same problem keeps happening. This has happened many times an I can never get past the "Used or Counterfeit Cartridge" page, it always freezes at this point.
