    I have installed my HP printer on my MBP and it works just fine when I need to print something. I've only printed some Pages documents, but I've had no problems. My problem is that every time I turn my MBP on and get the desktop, the HP Setup Assistant pops up (it happens when the printer is plugged in or not plugged in). I try to go through the setup, but where it shows to select a printer, it shows nothing so I cannot select anything. How can I fix this?

    Sounds like an annoying startup option.

    Open system preferences and click accounts. In your account section click on the "Login Items" tab and look for something resembling the HP startup agent or whatever. check it (to hide it) or delete it.
