Can't set HP LaserJet Pro 400 as default printer

I recently had a troubleshooting appointment for an hp printer that could not be set as the default printer. When I tried to make it the default, a message box came up saying "operation could not be completed error (0x00000709)". Other than that, it seemed to work fine. I even removed all the printer software through "Programs And Features"in the Windows control panel followed up by a Windows system registry scan. I then performed a clean install of the hp printer still no joy.
Next, I began to research the "operation could not be completed error (0x00000709)" error message on the internet. I came across a variety of solutions, which I tried in succession with no luck. I finally discovered the one that worked. It was a simple fix to the Windows system registry. This is what I did to solve the annoying little problem:
I. Type "regedit" followed by the enter key in the "search program and files" text box in the pop up menu that appears after clicking the Windows"start button" in the lower left hand corner of the Windows desktop screen.
II. Next, click "HKEY_CURRENT_USER" in the left hand pane of the Windows registry editor.
III. Then click "Software" followed by "Microsoft" and next "Windows NT".
IV. While under the "Windows NT" entry, click "CurrentVersion" and then "Windows".
V. Now, one of the entries you should see in the right hand pane is"Device". If the value for "Device" as noted under the "Data" area is anything other than the printer you are using, then highlight "Device" in the right hand pane with the mouse and press the delete key to remove it.
VI. Restart the computer so it starts with the altered Windows system registry.
After the Windows desktop appears again, you should be able to go into the"Printers" area and designate your printer as the default without receiving the "operation could not be completed error (0x00000709)" message.
Being able to designate the default printer can save you a fair amount of work over the long run. This is because you won't have to specify your destination printer in the printer dialog box - it is already selected since it's been set as the default.

You can change the default printer to any other printer that you have connected to your computer. This will simplify your printing tasks, since you can select the most frequently used printer to be the default. These instructions are for Windows 98. Instructions for other operating systems or versions may vary.

Click on the Start menu and click on Settings, then Printers. A window will appear showing the icons of all the printers that are installed on your system. Right-click on the icon for the printer you want to use as the default. A menu will appear. Click on Set as Default. To make sure the correct printer is now set as the default, right-click on the printer icon again. When the menu opens, a check mark should appear before Set as Default. Default Printer for All New Users b> Microsoft Windows supports a number of printers connected to any one machine. Windows allows users to customize their preferred printer for one-click and quick printing. If you create a new user on a Windows system, the default printer will not be set. Windows 7 allows you to configure a default printer for all users with a quick command-line setting. You must have Administrative access to the system and have the printer configured to run this command. b> Click "Start" and type "Command Prompt" in the Start menu. Press "SHIFT"+"ENTER" to run the Command Prompt with Administrator privileges. Click "Start" and type "Print Management." Press "Enter." Look at the name listed under "Printer Name" for the printer you would like to make default. Double-click it to open the "Properties" dialog. Right-click the highlighted "Printer Name" label and click "Copy." Return to your console Window and type "ntprint /setdefault name=<printer name>" and press "Enter." Replace <printer name> with the printer name on your clipboard. You can paste this by right-clicking the console window and clicking "Paste."
