My HP printer works fine and I did call tech. help and got forwarded four times and the problem is I am speaking to people from India who do not understand my point of question. My question is that I have three files running on my computer in the background and I only wanted the files to remain that just ran the printer. Sometimes, I am told by people that there are files that are not neccessary and just use up resources. So I thought I would just ask and give you the files which are:

hpzupm12

hpqste08

hpqtra08

Digital imaging monitor is the one down on the task bar which I believe is the file to just run the computer so I might be able to elimanate the other two?

I had a lexmark printer and I know this is serious as one file the "printer communication file""LXCGPPLS"
somehow is connected to a trojan and I have this file but program called "Scotty" helped me to "disable it" but admitted it that it is still there in windows sys but only disabled. Scotty lets me know when this file "LXCGPPLS"
can you also help me out on this?

Harry,

You shouldn't have posted your email...

Try using WinPatrol:

http://www.winpatrol.com/download.html

This tool will allow you to disable and enable many items, but does not delete them, i.e., you can restore its use.

Although the tray icon (hpqtra08) is not essential, the others may be.

Trial and error with WinPatrol, may be the best solution.

Good luck.

Hey, thank you very much for your advise. I already have "Scotty" Winpatrol, and I have disabled it last week and it tries to come back all the time and I click no. I will also use it with the HP files.

Hi "LXCGPPLS" can be linked to a Trojan.
Post a Hijack this log..a log expert will check it.

http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/files/hijackthis_sfx.exe

Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.

Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
Click Edit > Select All> Edit > Copy ..this will copy the entire contents of the log.
Paste the log in your next reply.

DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
