What I would suggest is to remove the HP Photosmart program from Add/Remove in Control Panel, rather than delete all the associated files. Then reinstall. Hope that helps.

You have answered your own question. Uninstall completely and reboot 2 times. Then reinstall. You should then have no problems.

How do I solve a problem with starting up windows in my hp pavilion g6? Whenever I start windows a blue screen appears and the computer restarts.

Sounds like your hard drive has either failed, come disconnected, or someone performed a full format of the drive which wiped out the partitions or the boot sector of the drive. Worst case you will need to replace drive and purchase reinstall disk from hp. Best case you will only need to purchase reinstall disk from hp. If you do need a new drive, I recommend purchasing it from hp directly, as it will already be prepared with hps proprietary boot configuration files which must be present for hardware to be recognized by system bios.

My system will not boot up.

It means that your computer starts up and freezes before it boots up. Please do the following:-
1. At boot up press F8 and select "Last Good Boot Up" or words to that effect. 2. It will restore to a date when your computer was booting up fine. 3. Try and remember what you installed that caused this problem. Do not install it again. 4. If this does not solve your problem then reinstall Windows.

Can't find HPPhotosmartEssential.msi file. Everytime we start the computer, its asking to download this file, and its nowhere to be found. Thanks

It should be on the install cd. Easy way to resolve is uninstall then re-install. I always download the latest drivers from the website.

HP Guru Needed!!! Subsystem spooler printer errors, trayapp.msi and HP Photosmart Essential.msi errors.

Best solution is to download the latest AIO software package from the HP site and install with that. Just make sure you get the right package (32-bit or 64-bit).

HPPhotosmartEssential.msi unable to download

You should have received a CD with the printer. I would go into the Windows Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and uninstall the drivers for this printer (if they were installed when you bought the printer). Next, insert the CD that came with the printer and install the necessary drivers and software. After a successful installation, you should not be promted for the "msi" file.

"hpphotosmartessential msi"

I have a HP 7280 all-in-one photosmart and today (27/05/10), this problem with "hpphotosmartessential.msi" first manifested itself. After trying several unsuccessful solutions, I was directed to un-install and re-install the software from the CD that came with the printer. This I've done and the problem so far seems to have been resolved.
