    I recenctly upgraded to Windows 2K. Last night my computer crashed while I was scanning some photos. I re-installed the scanning software and the scanner (which is attached by USB). However, whenever I reboot a new icon appears, HP Scanjet Parallel Port Test Utility (Version 1.01). How can I get rid of this icon? I try running MSCONFIG, but the file or one of its components cannot be found. Thanx!

    Try going to the "All User->Startup folder and delete it. It could be in there.

    Okay, try going to start->run typing regedit and navigate to
    HKLocalMachine->Software->Microsoft->Windows->Current Version, then click on "Run" once and in the right pane see if you can see the program. If you do, delete it and it won't startup next time.
