Make sure that your firewall program is shut down before installing the programs. I have hp program on mine and after I shut down my firewall it went through. Try downloading the latest software from www.hp.com
I would suggest you to go for restoring the system to a good known configuration.
Do a System Restore..
Otherwise more info on such issues can be get on Microsoft Article:
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off.
I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with
the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the
printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
