Anybody know how to disable this service in XP pro? Its not listed under windows services anywhere, I think its something to do with mail routing or something, but in windows event viewer there is always an error for "omscan failed to start, file could not be found." Did a search of the reg and found it all over the place, but I just want to know how to disable it, or keep windows from trying to start it at bootup.........

It is an old HP utility, which is no longer available. Run SYSEDIT and check for it in SYSTEM.INI and WIN.INI.

Hey Dan-O...
Nope, nothing to do with omscan there. Wonder why I'd have an old HP utility on here, being it's a custom PC with clean install of XP Pro??Hmmm... any other ideas? I'm befuddled.

Worked fine... I had that key identified, but I wanted to get more info on what exactly omscan was and if I needed it for anything, which it seems I dont, so whammo... its gone. We'll see if it mucks anything up, though I doubt it.
