After clearinf the Defence Virus my printer prints


Hi There,

In my experience with HP's (maybe more than I'd like :)), I've found that when you decide to remove and re-install an HP, the temp files from the first installation, no matter how long ago, stay within Windows and interefere with a frsh install. You can install a different HP or another brand and you won't be affected because those leave their own set of temp files.

So, even though a key file could have been removed in taking out the virus and the temp file removal solution may not help you, here's how to do it and it can't hurt to try.

Uninstall the 5550 from the Control Panel. Hold down the Windows Logo key on the keyboard and press the R key. A Run Command window will appear. Type in %TEMP% and hit the enter key. Your Temp File Folder will appear. Delete every file that Windows will allow (a few may remain because they are in use for normal Windows functions). Reboot your computer. Go to the Start Button>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools and run Disk Cleanup. Reboot your computer.

Now reinstal the 5550. If it doesn't run correctly after this, you'll know that the virus did damage within the small memory section of the printer and that's a problem I've personally never faced. Even if this is the case, at least you now know the proper and thorough way to re-install an HP Printer.

Good Luck

Deskjet 5550; Windows 7; Microsoft Office 2007; not printing


That is strange
Try changing the default to a different printer (Microsoft XPS Document Writer) see if it prints to it...

Then (If that works) try switching the 5550 back to default.

If that don't do it, uninstall thee printer, reboot and reinstall the printer.

My HP 5550 Deskjet won't print mirror image


You'll need to go to the manufacturer's site and find Vista drivers for your HP. Going from Win 98 to Vista is a major jump. I had to convert from XP to Vista and I still had to go get Vista drivers.

Also, make sure you get 32 or 64 bit drivers for the system.

I called Hewlett Packard and a technician worked very patiently with me to resolve the problem. I needed to download and install new drivers as the drivers on my installation CD had an error on them.
