I just reloaded the 3520 series download and when I opened the shortcut, it still opens in notepad.  I have the latest Adobe Flash installed - FYI.

I have Windows 7, so I know many things are different.

 

I first attemped the fix to change "Notepad" to "Microsoft (R) HTML assistant host", but could not find that option in my browser.

 

So, I attempted this fix, but did not know what to do because I have more than one HP Program.  I went ahead and installed the latest "Acrobat Flash Player" anyway.

 

Here's a cropped copy of my scanshot.

I rebooted, tried my HP short cut and still had the same problem.

 

Undaunted, I clicked the Window's "Start" button and then clicked on "Devices and Printers".

 

I checked the HP printer there and found that the "Acrobat Flash Player" installation had fixed the "Set Preferences", "See What's Printing". and "Customize Your Printer" options; but failed to fix the "HP Printer Assistant" (giving me the old Notepad Boxes instead).

 

So, I went back to Google Search and found this!

This Patch solved all my problems!  I did go back and delete my broken "short cut" on my desktop and drug a new "Short Cut" from my "Devices and Printers" panel which works great!

 

I am back in business and I do appreciate these and the other options that you HP Experts gave me to try!

 

Thanks so much,

-William

Uhmm, the URL for the patch I found (Message 16 above) is the same as the PC Wizard gave about in Message 13 above! I don't know how I missed that!

It works great!
