Did you have another HP printer installed previous to the PSC 1110 All-In-One? If so, find the drivers for that printer and see if the HP site has the Software Cleanup Utility for the other printer. If so, run the utility to get rid of everything left behind from the other printer.

If you had another brand of printer installed prior to installing the PSC 1110 go to the other printers manufacturers website and see if they have a cleanp utility for their printer.

HP has a Software Cleanup Utility for the PSC 1110 located here;

HP's printer software is notoriously "buggy" especially for multi-function machines.

Yes i did have another hp, a deskjet 5740 - the 5700 series.
i have now removed the driver etc. for the psc 1110, but i cant find out if they have a scrubber for 5700, i downladed one wich it came up after my search. but everytime i try to open it, it opens adobe dreamweawer!! it is called sp26339 and im not sure if it is even the right one:(

HP software throws files everywhere so there probably is a software conflict, or possibly an error in the registry.

If you are running XP have you tried a system restore to a date before you installed the PSC 1110 software?

I wouldn't use any file scrubber software for the old printer unless it came from the HP site.
