    I tried to setup a printer a while ago before we found out the damn thing was broken. I had started to setup assistant, but canceled it.

    Now, the program "HP Setup Assistant" pops up at computer startup, prompting me to begin configuring the device. How do i just cancel it for good?

    I had a demo of Internet Cleanup, and it expired. Now, at startup, it reminds me to purchase a new copy. Whatever. I thought I got rid of all of that program from the hard drive but of course I must be missing something.

    There should be a logical place for both of these things to be hiding, but I cant seem to find them. :rolleyes:

    darn. under login items, neither of those things are listed.

    and in startupitems, there are two HP related folders, and one Qmaster. i have nooo idea what Qmaster does.

    i got rid of the two HP folders, and restarted. the setup assistant still pops up. i dont know what else i can do about the other one now.
