|Just installed HP all in one printer driver, and now Hp is jamming my pc with the repeated message, everytime I load a new web page, something like, :Website wants to Run Program, and your firewall asks for permission. I can't see a way for the firewall to stop it.|
I tried to go into internet options in Vista, but that only allows for restricting websites, and this is a case of stopping an exe program from running - not going to a website, per se.
You have the option to block it, at each attempt, though there seems to be no option to block permanantly.
It has a check box for 'don't ask again' but even if you check it, it keeps on asking!
We'll I don't want HP to run anything on my non-HP pc, expect the printer when I want to print!
The specific program it wants to run is hpswp_clickbook.exe - it trys to run this constantly, and no printing job has ever been requested!!
This think is as annoying as can be, and I don't want HP nosing around in my pc or even the potential for this.
So right or wrong, I have deleted this file, and there it sits in the trash bin. You normally can't even find the file in the file structure. (must be hidden) The only way I found it was to do a search and then delete it. It's in something like... programs....... Hewlett-Packard/digitalimaging/smartwebprinting/hpswp_clickbook.exe
The big question - does anyone have experience with this file, and has anyone tried deleting it - if so with what effect?
Holding my breath........
