It's been a little over 1 year since the original install during which time the printer has had no problem. Recently Windows XP Pro was "repaired" which caused two error messages, which to eliminate required uninstalling the printer. In preparation for a reinstall, I have turned off the AVG 7.5 (purchased) anti-virus, disabled Spyware Blaster and PC Tools Spyware Doctor and turned off the Windows firewall. There is a firewall in the DSL "TwoLine" modem, which I do not know how to turn off.

I have attempted to do an install many times. The install stalls at section 3/4 and 6%. One time, when using the online install directly from HP, The install stalled at 3/4 and 96%. All other times, it, too stalled at 3/4 and 6%. I have been unsuccessful in being able to conclude an installation while online with HP tech chat. The last time, the tech gave me this URL to go to:

"Please open the following weblink to a new Internet explorer webpage which helps installation of software using the CD

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&objectID=c00442153

Please copy and paste the entire web-link from " http " to " c00442153 " into a new web browser and Press Enter. Follow the instructions to a successful install."

I could not complete the instructions to a conclusion.

I have a installation CD and have tried the install over 20 times with no success. I tried to do an installin Windows SAFE mode. The install stalled and indicated a problem with the print spooler.

Additionally, if I cannot install the all-in-one completely, is there a generic software that will allow me to print?

Thanks for your consideratio to HELP.

Are you sure they stalled? I have seen HP printers take 15-20 minutes for their software to complete?

Print Only ???

If it were me, I would not install the full HP Software Package.
I'd go here ... http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=228&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=441126&lang=en
and install the basic driver package ... #2 down in the list @ 48Mb

With the basic Drivers ... You will have to use something else to run the scanner ...
such as M$ Scanner n Camera Wizard.

Most HP installs let you choose between the full and basic package ...
But not familiar with your AIO.

I appreciate the two replies above! I wish I'd had the second one earllier so I could print a file that needed to be done today for my home owner associattion.

With the HP All-in-One printer software used by severasl models, depending on the system to which it is being installed will stall at 3/4 and 6% or 3/4 and 96%, I know and there may be other stall points that I did not have occur. I went to HP live Tech Chat 5 times and was given five different possible solutions. After having attempted all the solutions several times, which meant uninstalling each time and the shut down of a stalled install had to be a power down and then a final restart as well., before atempting the new install.

Finally, the tech on the fifth chat came up with a solution that worked. It involved following the directions found in a URl and NOT using the install disk, but downloading a fresh install file. The URL: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...5472&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN
It worked and near the end, involved the use of "New Hardware Found" to fully install. Hope this will help someone else!
