    Last weekend I had a tidy up of my programs on my laptop, I removed a few things one of which was the driver and software for my old HP Printer. I now have a new printer and am getting annoyed with the HP one asking for updates all the time.

    One of the other things I uninstalled was Bonjour as I thought it was just some apple thing that had installed along with all the Ipod stuff. However when I went to print with my wireless printer it was asking for Bonjour so I did a system restore.

    Unfortunately, now when I switch my laptop on the HP stuff keeps looking for bits to install and run in the system tray - v. annoying. So, I tried to uninstall it again via add/remove programs and it just won't do it. Its like part of it is there but not enough of it for it to acknowledge it and uninstall it.

    Is there another way I can get rid of it without having to go and install it all over again? I have tried different restore points to no avail.

    Edited to add, I am using Windows Vista.

    Thanks
