A while back, I accidentally the end of the USB wire for my HP Photosmart 6510 printer. So I went to Best Buy, and they told me that I would have to buy a new wire. Which I did; I bought an Insignia(TM) USB 2.0 A to B Cable to replace the damaged wire. I went home, replaced the wire, and tried to print a document off of Word. When I did so, it brought up these error messages: "
1) “Inkjet8.driver” will damage your computer. This file was downloaded on an unknown date. Report malware to apple to protect other users." 2) ""HPDM.framework” will damage your computer. This file was downloaded on an unknown date. Report malware to apple to protect other users."
What can I do? How do I get my computer to recognize that it's just the same old printer with a different wire?
I went and updated my version of the macOS from the Catalina to the "Big Sur 11.1" version. The good news: "Big Sur" is a much sleeker-looking operating system. Bad news: it hasn't fixed the problem with my printer AT ALL. My computer STILL thinks my printer is malware! Any advice would be appreciated!
