    Hi; I recently re-installed Windows XP and tried to install the software for my HP Photosmart C4480 all-in-one printer and after 96% complete the install fails and the HP solutions center will not install. I have searched the HP site and tried all their solutions( selective startup, disabling file-walls, disabling virus software) and it still would not install. Can anyone help ?

    I had that printer awhile back. I had nothing but problems with it. My only thought, really, would be to try installing it in Safe Mode.

    Do you really need the HP solutions Center ???

    I never load the full HP Print/Scan software .. But would install just the basic Driver package .. #2 in the Driver List Here
    You will have to use another method to run the scanner.
    If you decide to go this route, I can show you how to run the scanner without using HP's software.

    Thanks Guys .. Noyb..I will try that path ..The scanner is the one feature that I have a problem with. Currently I cannot scan to a PDF format and that is killing me. I will appreciate any help.

    I use Irfanview to run my scanner ... Instead of HP's software
    Once the scan is acquired, I can save it to about any format ... pdf is one option
