How to Remove the Selective Startup Popup?


Open the Start menu of the PC, and select Run.

Type regedit in the text area and press OK. The registry editor opens. 26319213-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-2.jpg Click on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

26319213-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-5.jpg Expand SOFTWARE then Microsoft

26319213-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-9.jpg
Expand Windows then CurrentVersion, then Run. On the right hand panel of the registry editor there will appear a list of program items which are related to the startup of the PC.

26319213-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-14.jpg Locate the item called MSConfigReminder and select it. Go to the Editor's drop down Favorites menu and click add so that the editor will go straight to the item in future, should it ever be necessary.
  • Then, with the MSConfigReminder item still selected, press delete to remove it, and close the editor.

26319213-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-35.jpg
  • There is no need to save anything for the editor; it is saved automatically as it closes.
  • On next startup the offending pop-up will have gone.

How can i have hp psc 1510 driver and valid Win32


Here's the fix:
* First uninstall your current HP installation.*
Step one: Uninstall the printer driver and software
1.
Disconnect the universal serial bus (USB) cable from the computer.
2.
Insert the printer software CD into the computer.
3.
A prompt to uninstall the software displays. Follow the on-screen instructions to uninstall the software.
4.
Restart the computer.
Step two: Turn off the Terminate and Stay Resident (TSR) programs and other background programs
When the computer is turned on, a software group called the Terminate and Stay Resident (TSR) programs automatically loads. These programs activate some of the computer utilities such as the anti-virus software but are not required for the computer to function. Occasionally, TSRs prevent the printer software from loading so that it does not install properly.
In Microsoft Windows 98, Windows ME, and Windows XP, use the MSCONFIG utility to prevent TSR programs and services from starting up.
1. Click Start and then click Run. The Run window opens.
2. In the Open: box, type msconfig, and then click OK. The MSCONFIG utility window opens.
3. Click the General tab.
4. Select Selective Startup.
5. If there is a check mark next to Load Startup items, click the check mark to remove it.
6. For Windows XP systems only - Click the Services tab and place a check mark in the Hide All Microsoft Services box. Select Disable All.
7. Click Apply and then click Close.
8. Click Restart to restart the computer.
Unplug your USB printer cable and reinstall. That's it!
Visit the HP Help Documentation Page for this error.
Here's the text from their page in case the URL for this changes:
Issue
The printer software installation stops and the Printer Driver Unknown error message displays on the computer. This document applies only to products connected with a USB cable.

There are two places you can look...
Under: Start button - Programs - StartUp, any items in the Startup list will automatically be run when you start your computer. Simply Right-Click on any suspicious entry and select 'Delete'.
Second Place: Select Start - Run, Type In: msconfig and click Ok.
In the config utility go to the StartUp tab at the top. In this window
you can uncheck items that you do not want to start when you turn on your computer. Any checked items will be automatically run when you start the computer. The availability of the config utility is dependant on what operating system you are running.
