It’s always a good idea to have a backup of your data but, I think the format/installing Windows is the last resort.
I would try running your Anti-Virus & Spy-ware software in SAFE MODE and see if they can spot and destroy your problem.

Backup your data. Format the hard drive. Re-install XP.
If your feeling masochistic download SpyBot Search and Destroy and try removing the winsit.exe spyware.

    The problem with trying to remove SpyWare is you have to have the wisdom of Soloman and the patience of Job. For the average Joe user the quickest solution by far is to format and re-install.

Try the following:

  1. Click Start > Run.
  2. Type regedit
  3. Click OK.

    Note: If the registry editor fails to open the threat may have modified the registry to prevent access to the registry editor. Security Response has developed a tool to resolve this problem. Download and run this tool, and then continue with the removal.
  4. Navigate to and delete the following entries:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\"dc2k5" = "C:\WINDOWS\SVIQ.EXE"
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\"Fun" = "C:\WINDOWS\system\Fun.exe"
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\"dc" = "C:\WINDOWS\dc.exe"
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows\"run" = "C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\Win.exe"
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\"Shell" = "Explorer.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\WinSit.exe"
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows\"load" = "C:\WINDOWS\inf\Other.exe"
  5. Exit the Registry Editor.

****, since you have been having many issues, I guess that your windows is corrupted.

The best way to proced is to install a clean copy of Windows, install all of services packs and updates and then install the HP software and test the printer.

I know this is a lot of work, but it probably will solve this and many other problem that you are experiencing.

good luck!

May 12th, 2008: Some customers reported problems installing Studio Plus version 11 UPGRADE (11.0) or Studio version 11 Standard (11.0) on systems with Windows XP Service Pack 3 was already installed (a message asking for Windows XP Service Pack 2 is displayed). Pinnacle is investigating this problem.
We can offer you the following workaround:
  • Copy all the content of the Installation DVD of Studio version 11 to your hard disk in a new folder.
  • Download http://cdn.pinnaclesys.com/SupportFiles/Studio11/WelcomeSP3.exe
  • Copy the file WelcomeSP3.exe to the root of the directory where the Installation DVD was copy
  • Double-click on WelcomeSP3.exe to launch it. It will take few seconds and then the Studio version 11 installation will start.

Firewall settings


This usually happens due to missing or corrupt SharedAccess reg key, which represents the Windows Firewall Service.
Resolution

Download sharedaccess.reg (for Windows XP SP2 only) and save to Desktop. Then double-click the file to merge the contents to the registry. The Services entry will be created. Restart Windows (mandatory step, otherwise the following NETSH command will display an error message).

After restarting Windows, run the following from Command Prompt (cmd.exe)

NETSH FIREWALL RESET

Launch firewall applet from Control Panel, and then configure your Windows Firewall settings.

If nothing helps, as a last-resort solution (before reinstalling Windows XP Service Pack 2), give these two commands a try. Click Start, Run and type:

rundll32 setupapi,InstallHinfSection Ndi-Steelhead 132 %windir%\inf\netrass.inf

Restart Windows, and then run this command (from Command Prompt):

NETSH FIREWALL RESET

Attempt to start Firewall applet. Start the Windows Firewall service if prompted.

Error in windows xp


I would suggest using Spybot Search & Destroy and see if you have any spyware software loaded. Also scan for viruses and use adware to ensure that you are not infected with anything. This should help!
