HP Customer Participation Program - Do I Need This Program?
I was looking at my add/remove programs and I see that I've got something called HP Customer Participation Program (138 MB) as well as the individual programs for the printer. Does anyone know what it is? Do I need to keep it? When I clicked remove it showed a warning not to if I intend to keep using the printer. But the software for the printer is installed separately so I'm not sure how it will affect anything.

Hi

Sounds to me like a feedback program for HP. I would guess that you could remove it safely. I assume you have the software for the printer on disk, so the worst that could happen is that you have to reinstall something.

Hope that helps

Thanks! Yes, I've got the disc so if it was important I'd be able to re-install it. It's interesting (annoying) what they add on that you don't know about.

Nope, it's not considered spyware.
