Having problems with your PC Desktops ?
HP Product Assistant asks for disk that HP didn't furnish
\015 Every time I boot my computer a window appears trying to install ''HP Product Assistant'' and asking for me to insert a disk. No disks were provided when I bought this Compaq Desktop with Vista Premium. What really bugs me is that it continues to try and install and does so throughout the day seemingly on a random basis. How can I disable this ******. HP has been zero help.\015
Here is the solution as posted on the HP website. Good luck!
I've gone through the deletion of the printer programs and reinstall from the original disc, but the end process is to reboot my computer. The Product Assistant Error 2718 window prevents the close down. What should I do next?
