    I am having the same problem with my HP PSC 1510 All-In-One Inkjet Printer. I recently bought a photosmart Digital camera which i thought may have been the problem when i installed the software for it. I uninstalled that software but didn't solve the problem.

    Same as other user... there seems to be an install process for HP Product Assistant that requires a CD to complete itself. It pops up twice EVERY time I start the computer.

    My problem is identical... but it's been going on about a week or so... doesn't seem to be any apparent reason why this started all of a sudden.

    I am having the same problem, and it also just started recently. Have to constantly hit the cancel button for about 2 minutes to get it to stop. I have the C7280. Have had it for at least 6 months, but have only had this problem the last couple weeks.

    I have the same problem, but I have the C7250 Photosmart Printer and I get HPPhotoAssistant. Can I use the above steps to rid it of it. I also had Best Buy look at it and they told me they had gotten rid of it at the tune of $200 and it wasn't there. However, I went to open the Solution Center and then it popped up again. I had planned to uninstall and reinstall the printer, but have not done that yet.

  • frankann5296 Feb 14, 2009

    Everytime I restart my computer I get the window, "can't locate HP productassistant.msi". Then a second window appears telling me to reinstall the installation disc. When I do this, it still can't find the Hp product assistant.msi. I have the HP Photosmart C6280 All-In-One.

    HPProductAssistant pops up when open my desk top and tells me I need to insert a CD so it can fix itself bu finding missing files. I have an HP Laserject 4plus which did not have this annoying software.



    When I bought a HP scanner last summer, HPProductAssistant was installed. My virus checker did not like the fact that HP ProductAssistant was constantly trying to secretly access the Internet without permission. Why would my scanner need to access the Internet? I can download the latest driver anytime from numerous trusted websites.

  • dfoulke1548 Apr 10, 2009

    Why would I have this same problem if I am using a dell all-in-one printer?? Same hp product assistant annoying windows pop up constantly - making me crazy!

How exactly would I then find miscuu2.exe ?? Sorry so helpless......

    t sounds like you might have "corupt software" Have you tried to un-install and re install the software that ha come with the product? Alsothis glitch that you are faced with needs to be channeled through HP. This way you can get a newer CD sent to you. Hope this helps, Steve

Using the same install disk for your printer that was originally installed may have been interupted to begin with... We just rebooted our computer, making it new, and installed printer yesterday which resulted in this HPProductAssistant pop up. Could not make it go away no matter how we tried. Reading it might be printer related we loaded original printer disk and it located file accessed and thier the download finished and went away. So if your having this problem then try to follow these finishing results.

I had a similar problem on my desktop Pavilion. This program is just sitting in memory and checking for updates. If your are not worried about getting updates then you can turn it off.

In the RUN box type MSCONFIG and the screen below will appear. Go to the Startup tab and un-check the box for "HPWuSchd2". Click OK to exit. You will need to reboot for this to take effect. (You can always turn it back on if any problems arise).
