Solved!

hptoolbox will not respond

HP Recommended

The other day hptoolbox  failed on start up.  Wasn't worried.  Now it starts, but I have no way to access.  If I start via start menu, another process starts, but no windows open.  Can't find any logs, so have no idea how to investigate.

 

Does this process really do anything that accessing my printer via it's URL doesn't?  If not, maybe I should give it the burial that this buggy software richly deserves.

 

Windows 7, HP laptop, printer cp1525nw.

 

Thank you

Well since this post hasn't been responded to, might as well use as an excuse to give my self a kudos.  Discovered my printer had somehow disappeared from laptop.  Reinstalled, and all now well with world.

 

If only toolbox could have issued some sort of diagnostic, but....

I just remembered a while ago I switched it to show notifications only.  I innocently thought I could start it my self if I wanted to use it.  Could it be stuck in that mode?  Any way to change back?  I changed task bar configuration back, but still no go.
