It’s this type of shit HP and Windows

So first of all – this is *horrible*. This pops up when I print something on my new HP printer. It disrupts my user experience, makes me less productive, and distracts me from what I was doing. I now have to read this message and figure out what to do about it.

Secondly – you don’t get this type of crap on a mac. I assume that’s because Apple refused to have their system filled with this type of ‘crapware’. That’s another reason why the user experience is better on apple products.

    Hope you’ve looked online to see if there is a way to disable that, b/c that is one big huge PITA.

    Yea – I’ve done a lot of looking and searching on HP’s site. I uninstalled the full application set and installed the minimal – and that seems to have helped reduce the number of pop-ups. but it’s still incredible frustrating. This is enough to convince me not to buy any more of these printers.

    Possible solution:

    hkey_local_machine\software\hewlett-packard\HPDJ printing system config\
    find current printer model
    set hpdjenablestatusclient to zero.

    I would have deleted the program, but taskmgr says it’s rundll.
